POTTEN END (East side)
5/200 Nos. 14/15
(Shepherd's Cottage)
House. Later C16 hall house, floored in mid C17, renovated and brick
cased in C18, S and rear extensions mid C20. Timber frame exposed
externally in N and S gables with red brick infill, red brick casing
with some blue bricks, steep old red tile roofs with half-hip and
gablet to S end of main roof, and half-hip to S extension. A 2-storeys,
4 windows long house facing W, with N end cut into hillside and a one-
window single-storey extension running down the slope at S end. Brick
front has dentilled eaves course and segmental arches to ground floor
openings. Flush leaded casements with iron opening lights and 2- or
3-lights. Interior shows framework of a 3-bays house with full-height
partitions to N and S of central hall, unheated N parlour up one step,
entrance and present stair in S bay with an added rear-wall external
chimney. Chamfered axial floor beam and plain squared joists to N bay
may be original, but bar stops to axial chamfered floor beams in hall
and S bay seem contemporary and rebated rib moulding to joists in hall
date them to mid C17. Framework has swept jowls, edge-halved scarf joint
in wallplate, straight braces to irregular tie-beams, clasped-purlin
roof on cambered collars with straight wind braces. Large internal
chimney at upper end of hall offset to rear possibly for an earlier
lobby entrance and stair when floor inserted in hall.
