5/87 Town Pightle Cottage & - Old School House - II

Originally a house, part later adapted as a school; now 2 private dwellings.

C16-C17 with mid and late C19 additions in Tudor style. The main range is at right angles to the road: timber framed, all but the rear portion thatched; this was extended forward in mid C19 in red brick, now colourwashed: the gable end has a large window with 2 tiers of 7 trefoil-headed lights and a hood mould over, a small 2-light window above in matching style and ornamental bargeboards. To the left hand side of the main range is a lean-to extension with mid C20 entrance door and set further back a late C19 addition with exposed framing, windows with trefoil-headed lights and ornamental bargeboards. To the right hand side is a one and a half storey timber framed and pantiled wing which, together with the rear portion of the main range, forms Old School House: various casement windows, one gabled dormer to front, 2 boarded doors to rear. Old School House is much less altered and has good exposed timbering inside.
