ST3308 HOLYROOD STREET 756-1/4/143 (West side) 20/08/74 Nos.62 AND 64 Chapter Cottage (Formerly Listed as: HOLYROOD STREET Nos.62 AND 64 (Chapter Cottage), Nos 68 and 70)


House. C16, rear wing probably rebuilt in early C17. Stucco, said to be over cob; slate roof with crested ridge; central ridge stack. 3-room cross-passage plan, with rear wing to right. 2 storeys, 4-window range. 6-panel door to right of centre, all windows have forward frames and C19 two/two-pane sashes. INTERIOR: cross-passage now lined with C19 tongued-and-grooved panelling. Room to left has fireplace backing onto passage, (stud partition removed). C20 stairs now positioned against left-hand wall. Room to right has Tudor-arched fireplace in rear right corner and repositioned stair in rear left-corner blocking Tudor-arched doorway to passage; 3 jointed cruck trusses with trenched purlins. Rear wing has fireplace backing onto central room. Room above has fireplace in same position with fleur-de-lys in raised plasterwork above. C20 partitioned passage leads to room to rear of rear wing. This has 2 reset jointed cruck trusses with tenoned and trenched purlins and mortices for arch bracing. The roof originally continued into Nos 58 and 60 (qv), the lack of smoke-blackening suggesting a C16 rather than late medieval date; the roof was probably originally open from the first floor.
