History

The cottage was probably originally built towards the end of the C17, comprising a small 3-unit dwelling. It was extended, probably in the mid C19, by the addition of a shop with accommodation over to the right hand end.

Exterior

Box framed in square panels with painted brick nogging and slate roof, with axial brick stack towards left. Doorway against stack, with 2x2-light casement windows to its right, and a further doorway (to the later shop) at the right hand angle. 2 gabled dormers in the roof. Later shop set back slightly to the right has wide 12-paned shop window of early C19 type to ground floor, and oriel window to first floor of gable return.

Reasons for Listing

A good example of the local traditions of timber framing applied to a small house in an important village-centre location; the former shop which retains a window of early type, is also of special interest.
