STOCKLINCH CP STONEY LANE (North side) ST3817 6/110 Pearses Orchard -


(Shown on OS map as Pearces). Detached cottage. C16, modified C18 and C20. Local stone rubble, with brick infill panels to swept dormers; thatched roof hipped west end, with plain gable to south and east; brick chimney stacks. L-plan; single storey with attics; 5 bays of which bay 1 is a C20 addition to match, and bay 5 is a gabled projection, possibly C18. Casement windows small C19 3-light horizontal-bar above, and C20 small-pane casements below, with bullnosed brick cills. Entrance to rear. East gable weatherboarded, over a post and truss end. Inside the plan form much altered and a C16 small house extended westwards in C20, and southwards for what was a carpenter's shop and possibly a cooperage, rather earlier: a second post and frame truss survives, as does a short length of framed partition and 2 triangular arched doorways, one of which has the jambs cut away to allow the easy passage of barrels; two large stone chimneys are probably C17/C18 additions, the wide fireplaces having chamfered timber beams.
