5/131 The Cottage
House, early C16. One storey and attics. A three-cell open hall house.
Timber-framed and plastered. Pantiled roof, once thatched; two raking
casement dormers. An external end chimney of red brick at either gable.
C19/C20 small-pane casements. Boarded C20 entrance door with open gabled
porch on posts. The 2-bay hall has one of a pair of 4-centred arched service-
room doorways exposed. The service cell to right has lodged unchamfered floor
joists. Heavy studwork, rather widely spaced. The open truss in the hall has
a pair of posts with archbrace evidence; the uncambered tiebeam has been moved
slightly for a chimney (later to be removed). Smoke encrustation at roof
level: the roof was rebuilt in C17/C18 but reusing blackened rafters.
