SX 46 NE,
Nos. 16 (Reading Corner Cottage) and 17
(Formerly listed as: BUCKLAND MONACHORUM BUCKLAND MONACHORUM Nos. 16 and 17)
Pair of Cottages, originally one house. C16, much altered in C20. Stone rubble
walls. Gable ended asbestos slate roof with 3 gables at front. 2 stone rubble
gable end stacks.
The original plan has been considerably altered by the conversion into 2 cottages
and is confused by the existence of an early internal doorway in the right-hand
gable end of No. 16, which suggests the house continued further that way. It may
originally have been 3 rooms with a through passage. Each cottage now has one
principal room heated by gable end stack.
2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3-window front mainly of C20 metal frame casements with
glazing bars; 2-lights except for ground floor left-hand window which is 3 lights.
The right-hand window on the ground floor is a C19 3-light wooden casement with H-L
hinges and timber lintel. The first floor windows are in gables created when the
house was virtually refronted in the circa mid C20. To the left are the 2 adjoining
C20 plank doors - the right-hand one for No. 16 the left for No. 17 - under a slate
pentice. At rear are similar gables, the central one is over a stair projection
which has a single granited framed light. At the left gable end of the building is
a similar window on the first floor with a roundheaded window below.
Interior of No. 16 has 3 substantial chamfered cross beams in the principal room.
Above the fireplace is a half beam, chamfered with bar and hollow step stops. The
fireplace has been rebuilt. To its right is a probably C16 chamfered wooden round-
arched doorway now blocked. In the entrance lobby is a re-used section of C17 plank
and muntin screen with beaded edges to muntin and head-beam. The curved feet of 2
substantial trusses are visible on the first floor embedded in the walls but roof
space inaccessible at time of survey.
