In the entry for The Grove
The description shall be amended to read:
Cottage. Early C17, extended to one end in the mid C.19 and with further C.19 and
C.20 extensions to the North facing the entrance. Timber framed on white washed
stone plinth with white washed brick infill above and rendered cladding to eaves.
Pebble dash cladding on C.19 extensions and brick extensions to North. Plain tiled
roofs hipped over and extensions and C.20 concrete over older range. Double stack to
left of centre at junction with C.19 range. This is built externally to the timber
framed range and dates from the C.19 addition. One storey and attic on old framed
range, two storeys to left. Garden front (and rear), three framed bays to old range
with C.19 casement fenestration. Two light outer casements and smaller window to
right of window. Glazed C.20 door to left of centre, small gabled dormer to left of
centre. Chimney bay to left and three horizontal beams of thin scantling (the
original corner post has been removed) linking to C.19 range having one glazing bar
C.20 window on each floor in older C.19 architrave surrounds. Right hand return
front (east), small gable end stack, blocked doorway to right. Entrance front;
majority of the old structure obscured by single storey extensions at right angles
to right of centre. Original doorway is in the second bay from the left and is now
converted to a window.
Interior: Original range is of three bays with once possibly baffle entry in the
centre. The stack is now removed and the two outer bays are now heated by later
stacks built externally to the timber frame at either gable. The frame is largely
intact with some arch-bracing to the cross walls. The first floor is largely original
with axial beams over the outer rooms, some original wide plank boarding above. The
staircase is an extremely rare and primitive ladder type with staggered dual treads.
The roof structure is complete apart from the cut central tie beam and the patched
hole in the north-west slope where the original stack emerged. It is a common
rafter roof with rafters halved and pegged at the apex. Single purlin, no ridge
piece. The garret was lit by gable windows, now altered by the attached stacks.
A remarkably complete and unaltered C.17 cottage with a rare ladder stair. The C.19
and later additions are not of special interest and have no internal features of
