2/32 End Cottage


House, C16, altered in C19 and C20. Timber framed, plastered, roof thatched.
4 bays aligned NE-SW, aspect NW, with axial chimney stack in the middle. C20
wing to rear of SW end, forming an L-plan, and single-storey lean-to extension
in E angle. Single storey with attics. C20 door, one horizontally sliding sash
window of 12 lights, C19. 2 C20 casement windows, 2 more in gabled dormers.
Roof hipped at SW end. Date 1799 in modern plaster of NE gable. Some framing
exposed internally. Jowled posts, heavy studding with curved braces trenched
outside, edge-halved and bridled scarf in SE wallplate. The NE bay was
originally of one storey with a gablet roof, later extended to form a gable and
floor inserted. There is an original central doorway into the next bay, showing
that this was the service end. In the second bay there is a floor of
longitudinal joists of horizontal section, unchamfered. Above this the roof is
of collar-rafter construction, with some charred timbers. There are 2 large
wood-burning hearths, both with apertures for bread ovens to the NW, and a cast
iron fireback with the crest of the City of London and the initials FW, C17. SW
of this, most of the structure has been renewed, as the result of a fire in 1883
and modern alterations. The fire was recorded in the Cambridge Evening News in
1883, at which time the building comprised 2 cottages, Worlds End Cottage and
Water Lane Cottage.
