4/21 No.7 (Castle Cottage)


House. Early C18, with earlier core. 2 storeys. Timber-framed and plastered;
ashlar-lined; pantiled roof with overhanging eaves. 2 internal chimney-stacks
with plain red brick shafts. 3 windows: small-paned sashes in flush frames.
Early C19 6-panelled door with raised fielded panels, panelled pilasters, and
entablature with roundels. The interior has a basic C16 2-cell plan, with a
3rd unit added on the west side; on the upper floor, evidence of a substantial
C18 roof-raising. A timber-framed and red brick lean-to along the rear. A
small parlour on the ground floor is decorated with a random collection of
early C19 wall-paintings: subjects include a watermill in a rocky landscape, a
seated man, possibly the owner of the house, with a maidservant; Daniel in the
lions' den; a sea battle; 2 large buildings, probably barracks, and a woman
playing with a baby. The source of these is unknown, but they are thought to
show French influences.
