3/110 Bressumer Cottage
Cottage; C16 in 2 stages, extended in late C18. One storey and attics.
Originally of 2-cell plan, extended to right in C18. Timber-framed and
plastered. Thatched roof with two eyebrow casement dormers. An axial chimney
of red brick. Casements of c.1980. To left is a C20 hipped entrance porch
with boarded door. To right is a single-storey C20 extension with flat roof.
Two cells of a single-storey C16 house of unusually small proportions: in late
C16 or early C17 an upper floor was inserted, the binding beam projecting
through the front and back walls. Unchamfered floor joists, widely-spaced
studding and clasped purlin roof. In late C18 the chimney was rebuilt, with a
lintelled open fireplace in the hall, and a further cell was added beyond it.
Included despite C20 remodelling as an unusual survival of a small C16
