Listing Text

SU 9643 SW
(north west side)
Nos 96, 98 (Cherry
Cottage) and 100

House, now 3 dwellings. C16, altered C17, refronted C18; altered. Timber frame
with roughcast front; plain tile roof. 2 storeys, 4 first-floor windows.
12-pane sashes throughout, those on ground floor with glazing bars, all with
flush wood architraves. On right, Nos 96 and 98 have paired doorways with C20
doors, moulded wooden architraves and dentilled cornice, with flanking windows
on each floor. On left, No 100 has door of 4 flush panels to right in similar
architrave and with 2 windows on each floor to left. Parapet with flat coping.
Brick stack at left end. Right return: large-scantling timber frame visible,
having mid-rail, wall posts and straight braces; wing extends to right. Left
return: masked by lean-tos not of special interest, but with tile-hung gable.
Rear: late C19 brick wings to Nos 98 and 100 with added lean-tos, a 4-pane sash
to first floor of each, and half-hipped roof. No 96 has earlier wing of brick
to cover part, tile-hung above with C20 small-paned casement windows and hipped
roof; added single-storey wing not of special interest. Interior: No 98: left-
hand wall is timber-framed with wattle and daub infill and a straight tension
brace; a 2nd cross-wall approx 1 metres to right of this wall, possibly indica-
ting the position of a former smoke bay; on ground floor an inserted chamfered
cross-beam with stepped cyma stop; right-hand wall has tie-beam rising at
centre, with queen struts. No 96 is probably an early C17 addition; it has
small-panelled timber-framed rear wall, the left wall (probably former end wall
of original range) is of larger-panelled timber framing; the right hand wall on
first floor has central post straight-braced to mid-rail; the first floor is
supported by large-scantling joists which rest upon the left-hand mid-rail
(rather than being morticed in; this indicates they post-date that timber); in
left wall, at front, is the chamfered head of a former opening. Interior of
No 100 not inspected.
