LITTLE TEW ENSTONE ROAD SP3828 (West side) 11/107 Nos.1 to 4 (consecutive) Timberyard Cottages

GV II

Farmhouse, possibly manorhouse, now cottages. Probably early C17 with C14 fragments, re-modelled early C19. Limestone and marlstone rubble with some limestone-ashlar quoins and timber lintels; Stanesfield-slate and Welsh-slate roofs with brick stacks. 2-unit through-passage plan with crosswing and rear wings. 2 storeys plus attic. Main range has, to extreme left, the passage entrance and has a second plank door between large 3-light casements; first floor has similar fenestration plus a 2-light casement over the passage door. Cross wing to left, which projects to rear, has a straight joint with the main range and has C20 fenestration. Rear of main range is largely obscured by 2 low wings but retains a continuously-moulded pointed C14 archway at the rear of the passage. The rear roof slope has a stone-slate covering. Interior: large open fireplace backing onto through passage; massive stop-chamfered spine beams. Roof to main range has 2 rows of butt purlins and no ridge beam. Through passage may be on site of a former screens passage; mutilated doorway from passage to crosswing say be a second C14 archway.
