1/57 Chapel Cottage

- II

Former farmhouse. Circa 1600. One-and-a-half storeys; 3-cell plan; 4 bays.
Timber-framed and rendered; thatched roof; internal chimney-stack with a plain
white brick shaft. The apex of the north-east gable is infil led with black
knapped random flints. 3 small-paned 2-light casement windows and 2 eyebrow
dormers; that to the right of the stack is a mid-C20 insertion. Plank door.
Widely-spaced plain framing and joists set flat. The service end (south-west)
is still divided into 2, but the partition wall has been removed and a C20
partition set about 1 foot away. Main beams with chamfer and curved stops,
that in the parlour with an additional groove. Open fireplaces in both main
ground-storey rooms with plain timber lintels. Diagonal pegging in the north-
east gable wall indicates that there were originally small projecting windows
to both storeys. Upper doorways with the jambs formed of naturally curved
timbers have been fitted into the'tie-beams with dovetail halvings; those to
each side of the stack appear to be original. Side purlin roof.
