2/1 Turks Cottage
House. Late medieval, reconstructed c1600, sub-divided in C19,
restored in later C20. Timber frame roughcast, with steep old
red tile roofs hipped at rear. 2-storeys, U plan house with 2
gabled crosswings projecting unequally on W front, and very large
rendered brick central chimney rising through the front
roofslope, serving the hall and parlour wing to the N. This is
an C18 replacement of a presumably timber framed older chimney,
but retaining moulded fireplace lintols of c1600. There are twin
'Tudor' arched chamfered wooden doorways on the 1st floor into
the chambers in the N wing. Unusual plan with a service room (?
dairy) on E of very large parlour, stair rising on E of chimney,
and entrance probably into S end of hall. 2 storeys W front has
one window to each crosswing on each floor and 2 to recessed
centre to right of projecting brick flank of chimney. Long, low,
2-light leaded casements (renewed). Framing inside upper floor
suggests the earlier house was of Wealden type. (RCHM Typescript:
EHAS Newsletter 28 (1968)).
