2/21 Glebe Cottage
Cottage. C17. 2 storeys; 2-cell end chimney plan with later additions.
Timber-framed, part plastered, the remainder encased in colour-washed C19
brick. Clay pantiles. 2 3-light cast-iron casement windows to the upper
floor, and 2 C20 replacement windows on the ground floor, set into surrounds
with segmental arches, with a blocked doorway between them. A C19 brick
extension for a stair and hall on the west end also has a blocked doorway.
Plain framing, in 3 bays, exposed inside; the original fireplace has a plain
timber lintel; some of the ceiling beams are very rough. Roof structure
largely concealed. The cottage stands sideways-on to the road, in a corner-
to-corner position with The Old House (see preceding item), and it seems
likely that it was built as a unit house. It is now separately occupied.
