TQ/15/NW (west side)

7.9.51 No.75 (Yew Tree Cottage) and
No.77 (Tea Tree Cottage)


Farmhouse, subsequently The Cock Inn, now 2 dwellings. Probably later C17;
altered. Handmade red brick with some burnt headers, some tile-hanging, red tile
roof. Linear 3-unit lobby-entry plan with continuous rear outshut. Two storeys
and attic, with 4 windows at 1st floor; No.77 (the right-hand half) has the
doorway in line with the chimney at the junction of the 2nd and 3rd bays,
protected by a small pitched canopy; a small window to the right (lighting
former larder), otherwise one 3-light casement window in each bay at ground
floor and 2-light casements above; and over the ground floor window to the right
a 4-course band carried round. Large axial chimney stack behind the ridge. The
gable wall is tile hung at ground floor and above 1st floor, with a 2-light
casment at 1st floor (recently re-opened) and a single-light window to the attic;
and an added chimney stack. To the left, No.75 has two C20 bay windows at
ground floor, two 2-light casements at 1st floor; and its gable wall has an
inserted doorway and a large external chimney stack at the end of the outshut.
The rear of the whole building has a catslide roof over the outshut.
Interior: No.77 has an inglenook fireplace with chamfered bressummer; the 3rd
bay is partitioned (perhaps historically so) to make a small larder just inside the
doorway; and part of the former housepart in the centre is incorporated in the
other dwelling. No.75 has in the rear left corner (end of outshut) a small
inglenook fireplace with chamfered bressummer, and remains of a former bread
oven. Both dwellings have internal timber framing of light scantling.
