SUMMARY OF IMPORTANCE:
Fays Cottage is a C17 timber framed cottage with C18 and C20 alterations and extensions. All buildings of pre-1700 date which contain a significant proportion of their original fabric are likely candidates for designation. For vernacular buildings, retention of the original plan-form, construction and fabric are additional factors for consideration. Fays cottage retains a significant proportion of C17 timber framing and a legible plan form.
