MORCHARD BISHOP FORE STREET (north-east side) SS 7607 - 7707 Morchard Bishop 11/154 Nos. 8 and 9 (Thurlby Cottage) - 26.8.65 GV II
Cottage, formerly 2 cottages. C18. Plastered cob on rubble footings; rubble stacks topped with C19 and C20 brick; thatched roof. Now a 2 room cottage facing south- west set between Nos 7 and 10 Fore Street (q.v.). Rear lateral stack serving right (south-east) room and end stack in left (north-western) party wall. Latter shared by adjoining cottage (No. 10). 2 storeys. Symmetrical 2-window front employing a variety of C19 and C20 casements, only first floor left without glazing bars.
Ground floor right window, a C19 3-light casement with slender glazing bars and small rectangular panes, some of old glass. Central doorway with C20 gabled and thatch-roofed porch.
