TM 05 NW

2/150 Lodge Cottage


House, probably early C16 with extensions of c.1600, c.1700 and mid C20. Of
3-cell plan, with a rear service wing added c.1700 to right. One storey and
attics. Timber-framed and plastered. Thatched roof, hipped at right hand
end; 2 C19 casement dormers. An axial chimney of pink/buff brick. Small-pane
casements of C19 and C20. Gabled late C19 or early C20 porch with C18 or
early C19 2-panelled door at lobby entrance position. An unusual survival of
a very small house, probably not later than c.1550. An open hall house with a
cross-entry at the present front entrance position. Heavy, widely-spaced
studwork and smoke-blackened coupled-rafter roof. A single-cell extension to
right has mid C16 framing and a blocked diamond mullioned window. An inserted
floor in the hall reuses several heavy medieval joists. In late C16 or early
C17 a further cell was added to left with unchamfered floor joists and clasped
purlin roof; perhaps at this time the chimney was inserted into the cross-
entry. To rear is a service wing of c.1700 with good pegged primary braced
studwork for date, and clasped purlin roof. A mid C20 flat-roofed single-
storey extension to left is not of special interest.
