15/100 The Oaks
Cottage. Circa 1600 with early C18 addition and other late C19 and
C20 additions. Timber framed with painted brick nogging; thatched
roof. Framing: c.1600 large square panels, 2 from sole plate to wall
plate. Early C18 light framing. Baffle-entry plan of 2 framed bays.
One storey and gable-lit attic. Central brick ridge stack. North-
east front: 2 windows; C20 three light wooden casement to left and
C20 two-light diamond-leaded wooden casement to right. Roughly central
late C20 boarded door with gabled porch. Flanking probably late C19
one-storey additions with hipped slate roof, that to left with 2-light
diamond-leaded casement to front. Probably C19 lean-to addition at
rear. Interior: right-hand room with chamfered spine beam and chamfered
joists (with ogee and plain stops). Blocked fireplace with chamfered
wooden lintel. This has been identified (Hey) as the cottage occupied
by the Hughes and Hanmer families in the C16 and C17 as described by
Richard Gough in his Antiquityes and Memoryes of the Parish of Myddle
(1701). The plan appears to have begun as a single-cell end lobby
entry plan cottage (possibly open to the roof) which was extended to
the east c.1700. A photograph in Hey's book (1974) shows the cottage
with a graded slate or plain tile roof. Richard Gough, Ed. D. Hey,
