ILTON CP FROST (North side)
(formerly listed as Wayside
Detached cottage. C15 origins, modified. Local stone rubble, some patching in roughly cut and squared lias stone;
thatched roof with plain overhung gables; brick end and intermediate chimney stacks. Single-storey with attics, 7 bays.
Mid-1980s rectangular-leaded timber casement windows of 2, 4, 4, 3, 2 and 3 lights; above, 3-light windows set into
thatch over bays 2 and 4, the former a C18 window with central iron-framed opening light; to bay 4 open timber and
thatched porch with C20 door. North-west gable apparently cob above stonework, south-east gable timber clad. All
significant work is internal: cross-passage plan, with plank and muntin partitions, a hall fireplace with timber-framed
smoke hood, an early pointed-arched timber framed doorway; above, ample evidence of jointed cruck construction, with
smoke-blackened curved windbraces, and wattle-and-daub partitioning, and signs of a likely curing chamber: some
internal wall faces may be of cob. (VAG Report, SRO unpublished, 1975).
