4/34 Church Cottage

- II

House. C16 and early C17. 2 storeys: 2-cell lobby-entrance form. Timber-
framed and roughcast rendered; clay pantiles. The internal chimney-stack has
a plain rebuilt red brick shaft. 2 3-light casement windows with transomes to
each storey. Plank door under a small open porch with single-pitch pantiled
roof. The 2 halves of the house seem not to be contemporary, although close
in date: a join in the wallplate on the line of the stack. To the left of the
stack, the ground floor room has walls of very good close studding, unusually
combined with a ceiling with widely-spaced joists and a main beam with a small
ovolo-moulding; the roof over this section is original, with clasped purlins
and windbraces. To the right of the stack, a slightly lower 2-bay section has
a main beam with wide chamfer, curved stops and main posts with carved
shields, one bearing the initials W over CS, the other dated 1610, with
initials W over JS. On the upper floor, the tie-beam has arched braces, but
the roof is a C20 renewal. A small 1½ storey wing at the rear has widely-
spaced studding with arched braces at the corners; roof concealed
