1/63 Church Corner Cottage,
- Church Room and Crossways


Formerly a guildhall, now 2 cottages with Church Room between. Late C15/early
C16 with later additions at both ends, that to the right of mid or late C19.
Late C19 rear addition to Church Room. Timber framed, pebbledash render, the
right hand addition in red brick; thatched roof. 2 storeys. 5 windows, various
casements of C18 and C19. 2 plank doors and one boarded door. 2 internal
stacks; to the right is a parapet gable end with integral stack. The original
structure has 3 bays, with a queen post roof. The roof structure was
originally open at first floor level and there were 2 ornamental open trusses,
of which one remains, with evidence for the second. The surviving truss has
slender octagonal queen posts with moulded bases and well-carved moulded and
crenellated capitals; the arcade plates are slightly canted inwards. The
remainder of the roof has been somewhat altered. In the Church Room there is
a floor beam with broach stop-chamfers and short arched-bracing to the wall
posts. Apart from this very little timbering is visible.
