TM 38 NE
2/9 English Cottage
- II
House. Later C17. 2 storeys. A colour-washed brick face to a timber-framed
core; clay pantiles. 2 red brick Dutch gable-ends, each with well shaped
copings and corbels, and a chimney-stack with a plain shaft. The left gable
is colour-washed, and bears a large wrought-iron 'I' and 'R' on its upper
part. Various windows, mainly C20 replacements: 2 2-light small-paned
casements with segmental arched heads to the ground floor, and a fixed small-
paned window on each side of the present entry. These replace 2 former doors.
C20 enclosed and gabled brick and pantiled porch with glazed door. The
interior has plain, not very substantial, timbering in 5 bays, with evidence
of an altered layout. The ceilings are at 2 different heights, and the house
may well have been extended at-both ends; it has a long frontage. The ground
floor fireplace to the lift stack as original brickwork and a small timber
lintel; the stack on the right is apparently a later insertion.
