7/84 The Old Shop



House. C16 and possibly earlier origins. Roughcast rendered rubble and some cob. Slate roof with gable end to right. Probably 3-cell through-passage plan originally, the room to left of through-passage later forming part of shop with lower end of Hakeford cottage (q.v.). Large lateral front hall stack with batter and offsets, shaft heightened in brick. 2-storeys 3-window range of C19 2-light casements 8-panes each light. Corrugated asbestos pentice to left side of stack and breaking forward over bread oven projection covers a 2-light casement 8-panes per light to left of C16 4-centred arched chamfered doorframe with C20 plank door. 2-light hall window 8-panes per light with 4-paned sidelights. 2-light casement to right also 8-panes per light. Lean-to garage at right end with corrugated iron roof, covering blocked raised doorway to gable end. C20 extension to rear with lean-to corrugated asbestos roof. The feet of a pair of sawn off raised cruck blades survive, rest of roof timbers are C20. C17 doorframe with chamfered surround with run-out stops to head of stairs. Plank and muntin screen to through-passage, 3 planks wide to right and single plank wide to left of 4-centred arched doorway. Stairs inserted at left end have slightly reduced the length of the screen at this end. A further screen formerly divided hall and inner room, but only the headrail and shoulder-headed doorframe are in situ: the planks, one of which has the incised figure of St Dorothy carved on it, have been reinstated into their original positions, the headrail and shoulder - headed doorframe remaining in situ.
