5/138 Beck View & Palm Cottage
-- II

Former farmhouse, now 2 cottages. C16 and C17 (in 3 phases) with C19
alterations. Timber framed core, encased in colourwashed brick. Pantiled
roof with glazed black tiles at the front. 2 storeys and attic. 3-cell form.
3 windows, mid C20 casements. 2 mid C20 doors. Internal stack, the shaft
rebuilt in C19. Beck View has early C16 or earlier core, raised and re-roofed
in late C17; heavy unchamfered ground floor joists and evidence for one
diamond-mullioned window. Palm Cottage is a C16 2-cell addition to the
earlier range: some heavy framing with cranked corner bracing to each bay and
evidence for original windows. Chamfered joists to ground floor rooms. Roof
with clasped purlins and arched wind-bracing. A weathered end to one of the
purlins visible inside Beck View indicates that the upper part of this gable
was once an outside wall.
