STANTON HARCOURT SP4105 No.30 (Smithy Cottage) 21/291 13/01/88

- II

House. Probably early C15, remodelled C16 and C17. Cruck-framed. Coursed limestone rubble; left bay, former smithy-outbuilding and early C19, is weatherboarded; gabled C20 shingle roof, hipped to left; stone end stacks. 3-bay hall remodelled and now 3-unit plan with former smithy-outbuilding to left. One storey and attic; 3-window range. Hood moulds over C17 three- and 4-light chamfered stone-mullianed windows, and over C20 three-light casement to left; C20 gabled roof dormer. Timber lintel over C20 double-doors to front of left bay, 3-light leaded casement above hood mould over early C17 three-light chamfered stone-mullioned window to rear. 1953 rear extension. Interior: full cruck trusses with collars, through purlins and saddled apex. In left bays open to the roof and formerly smithy, an open fireplace with bressumer. Stop-chamfered beams of inserted floors. Smithy Cottage may originally have been a barn and converted at an early date to a hall-house. The central bay may have been floored C16 and a possible former smoke-hood may be of this period. The right-hand bay was floored C17 when stacks added and walls remodelled. (A. Pacey, Duck End: a group of Oxfordshire houses (privately published) 1985, p.59).
