4/57 The Thatched Cottage

- II

House. C17. 1½ storeys. Timber-framed and rendered with thatched roof. 3
3-light late C20 diamond-leaded casement windows to each storey. Plank door
under an open thatched and gabled porch. An internal chimney-stack with a
plain red brick shaft, and one end stack. The frame is in 6 bays, including a
chimney-bay, probably with a basic 3-cell division, but to the left of the
stack there is now a single large room, with the ceiling beams either an
insertion or replacement. The main posts have no tie-beams, and some of the
timbers are reused. To the right of the stack, the main beam on the ground
floor has ovolo-moulding and ogee stops; the remaining beams are chamfered,
with plain joists set flat. A single-storey lean-to along the rear.
