23.11.73 No.78 (Old Pound Cottage)


Farmhouse, now house. Probably late medieval, altered in C16 or early C17; with
early C18 addition; altered. Timber frame with brick nogging (painted white),
slate roof, chimneys of hand-made brick; the addition now roughcast painted
white, with red tile roof. Single-depth 2-bay plan (the 1st bay perhaps formerly
an open hall with a smoke-bay at the left end); one-bay addition to the left
end. All 2 storeys (the addition lower); the exposed timber framing, of 2 unequal
structural bays (the 1st wider), with a short extension at the left end, includes 4
posts, with arch-bracing to the 1st and 4th, mid-rail, and various light studs and
secondary rails making square panels; the wider 1st bay has a one-light and a 2-
light casement at ground floor and coupled 2-light casements under the eaves;
the 2nd bay has a modern glazed door, a 2-light horizontal sliding sash with
small panes to the right, and small one-light casement under the eaves. There
is a large external chimney stack at the right-hand gable, and an integral
chimney at the left gable. The addition to the left has a 2-light casement on
each floor, a door to the right and a small 4-pane fixed window at 1st floor
above this. The rear is roughcast, partly covered by lean-to additions, and has
inter alia a glazed door at ground floor, and very small casements of 1 and 2
lights under the eaves of the main range, and 2-lights in the addition.
Interior: timber-framed partition between the bays, the joists of the 2nd bay
tenoned into the rail but those of the 1st bay resting on top of it (suggesting
that the ceiling was inserted); the 1st bay also has a fine chamfered lateral
beam with unusual stops, and large square joists on its outer side; at 1st floor
the frame forming the partition to the addition has been cut through for a door,
and the brace severed; the chimney stack at this end has remains of a bread
oven; the addition has some crude fielded panelling, and a door with C18 hinges.
