- Tree Cottages (formerly

9/12/55 Cottage (pair))


Two houses; built as one, c.1530. 3-cell plan. 2 storeys. Timber-framed and
plastered, the upper floor is long-wall jettied towards the street with
chamfered brackets beneath. All have had pilaster shafts with carved
capitals, and there remain two exposed, one at either end. No.35 has a
thatched roof, No.37 is plaintiled. An axial late C16 chimney of narrow red
bricks. C18 and C19 casements, those at ground storey with transomes. No.35
has the original cross-entry doorway, with a chamfered 4-centred arched head.
Plaintiled C20 lean-to porch; its supporting posts are probably of C16 origin
with curved brackets at the head, and may come from an earlier porch in the
same position. No.37 has a C20 glazed panelled door. There is some good
framing exposed internally: double-ogee moulded main beams in the hall, close-
studding with arch and tension wind-bracing combined, and open trusses with
arch braces of 4-centred arch form. The late C16 chimney was placed in the
earlier cross-entry.
