5/157 Long Thatch Cottage
House, early or mid C16: alterations of late C16, and probably 1681. One
storey and attics. 3-cell cross-entry plan. Timber-framed and plastered.
Thatched roof with axial C17 chimney of red brick. Two eyebrow casement
dormers with leaded lights. Various windows, including some glazed diamond
mullioned windows and a large C20 bay with lean-to plaintiled roof. Open C20
plaintiled entrance porch with boarded door. Heavy C16 framing. The parlour
cell to left has massive unchamfered joists reused from a medieval house;
other medieval components include wallplates, posts and a few rafters. In the
hall is a mid C16 1st storey floor of heavy chamfered joists. Arch windbraced
studding. The service cell is slightly later, perhaps late C16. Studwork
with prominent reverse-arch windbraces; on-edge floor joists are a later
alteration. The internal plaster date 1681 appears to relate to the
rebuilding of the roof with clasped purlins and the construction of the
chimney with back-to-back open fireplaces.
