Listing Text

The following Building shall be added:-


5/107 NO. 34 AND 36
Pair of cottages C17 with C19 extension and C16 fragment. Timber
framed with painted brick facade. Other walls rendered. South
face of roof is hung in handmade clay plain tiles. North face in
slate. 2 axial brick stacks. Each cottage single bay. Shared
stack with winding stairs on south side. C19 rear extension
comprises kitchen on ground floor with bedroom above C20 casement
windows and 2 C20 doors. On west gable end of NO. 36 facing
outward is a fireplace opening now bricked in but still with its
original mantel beams with stop chamfer moulding and brick jambs.
A section of cross frame with swept jowls to posts, tie beams,
and cut off wall plate also survives. The stack has been adapted
to serve No.36 but is a remnant of an earlier timber framed house
to the immediate west demolished earlier in C20. No.'s 34 and 36
were built up against this structure. The rear roof is at a much
shallower pitch than the front face to accommodate the rear
addition. The whole roof was raised probably in C19. Interior of
36 includes chamfered spine beam with drawn out stop., vertical
section joists and exposed studwork on party wall. C17 fireplace
opening with chamfered mantel beam. Adjoining cupboard has strap
hinges. 12 inch wide oak floor boards to upper floors. Water lane
is wrongly shown on the O.S map as brook street.
