5/16 Wrights Cottage
Cottage, C17. 3-cell lobby-entrance plan. 1 storey and attics. Timber-
framed and plastered. Thatched roof encased in corrugated iron; an axial C17
chimney of narrow red brick. Various C20 windows. Gabled C20 entrance porch
at lobby-entrance. Tension stud-braced studwork. Wind-braced clasped purlin
roof. Unchamfered fully exposed floor joists on edge except in service cell.
Lintelled open fireplace in hall. Service room partition removed and part of
