6/92 Mount Sorrel Cottage


Detached cottage. C15, altered late C16, C19 and C20. Painted
rubble stone, half-hipped thatched roof with brick stacks. Gable
end to road, 2 bays. Single-storey and attic, 1-window. C20 door
in C20 extension to left, single-light and two 2-light casements,
one in blocked doorway to right. Attic has one 2-light casement.
Right return has 2-light and 3-light casement either side of curved
projecting bread oven. Left return has C20 flat-roofed extension
and two C20 dormers. Rear C20 kitchen extension.
Interior retains central arch-braced open cruck truss with
chamfered soffits, full crucks on stone pads, a second cruck truss
to south gable end only partly visible. Inserted floor, probably
C16, has deeply chamfered beams with stepped stops running parallel
to roof trusses including south gable end. Inserted stack of
similar date on north side of open truss, has open fireplace with
cambered lintel on stone jambs. Probable that house originally
extended to the north; two bays would otherwise have been
surprisingly small for a structure with such a fine open roof
