ASHTEAD RECTORY LANE TQ 1857-1957 (west side) 8/39

23.11.73 No.24 (Forge Cottage) and No.26 (Wistaria Cottage) GV II

Farmhouse, now 2 dwellings. Probably C17; altered. Timber frame with brick nogging and brick cladding at ground floor, red tiled roof, brick chimney. Rectangular single-depth plan, 2+2 bays, but with large modern extensions at the east end of the north side, at the west end, and on the south side. The north side has exposed timber framing at 1st floor of the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th bays, including a rail, wallplate, 5 posts (3 with angle-braces to the wallplate), and some intermediate rails of light scantling; between 2 closely-spaced posts in line with the central chimney is a clock face, to the left the 2nd bay has a modern 3-light casement, and to the right the 3rd and 4th bays each have a small 2- light casement. At ground floor the brick wall projects slightly (suggesting that it clads similar timber framing, but none is visible internally), and has some vertical joints suggesting altered openings, but the present openings are not of special interest. The left (east) gable wall (No.26, Wistaria Cottage), of handmade brick in Flemish bond, has a segmental-headed doorway in the centre and 2 segmental-headed 2-light casements on each floor. Interior: No.24 has a brick fireplace approx. 2 metres wide with a timber bressummer; remains of timber-framing in the gable wall; and a queen-post roof truss between the bays; but is otherwise altered; No.26 not inspected internally.
