Reasons for Designation
Tudor Cottage, a timber framed building of C17 date, is designated at Grade II for the following principal reasons:
* Date: most buildings dating to before 1840 will be listed, and this cottage is thought to date to the mid-late C17
* Rarity: this cottage is two rooms deep, whereas most timber-framed houses in this region are only one room deep, with rear rooms placed in outshots
* Survival: in addition to the timber framing of the front elevation, this building retains timber framing elements internally, including bressumer and ceiling beams and stud partitioning.
