5/23 Widden Cottage
Cottage, formerly 2 cottages. Mid-late C17 with C20 modernisations. Plastered cob
with inserted C20 brick footings, cob stacks with C20 brick tops. Corrugated
asbestos roof. Cottage made from 2 identical contemporary, attached cottages.
Each 2 storeys with 1-room plan. Both face south-east away from the road with
front doors to left. Stacks in right-hand gables with (now disused) stairwells
alongside the rear. Single front windows to each room and right cottage door now
replaced by window. All casements replaced 1984. C19 'West of England' insurance
plaque rear centre under the eaves. Interior has chamfered beams with scroll stops
and original roof purlins between cob gable walls. Fireplaces now blocked. A
third cottage to the left was demolished in early C20 and party wall partly
rebuilt. They are said to have been miners' cottages but pre-date nearby lead and
manganese works. Nevertheless Widden Cottage is rare survival of C17 single-room
cottages. Incorrectly spelt 'Whidden' on map.
