Details

CLANFIELD BAMPTON ROAD SP2802-2902 (North side) 7/10 Northcourt Cottages GV II

House, latterly divided into cottages, now returned to one house. Late C16, eaves raised and extended mid-to late C18 with later additions and alterations. Roughly coursed and dressed limestone rubble; stone slate roof. Original 2-unit plan with prominent gables to front with roof raised and extended by one bay to right in C18. Two storeys and attic. Original part with outline of former gables and roof pitch visible to front and left gable end respectively has ovolo-moulded wooden mullion windows (all of 3 lights except lower left of 5) on each floor to left and right of central plank door under gabled hood. The windows ail have leaded lights and have been re-faced in late C20; those to ground floor have chamfered wood lintels and those to first floor have plain lintels. C18 extension has infilled doorway with chamfered wood lintel immediately to right of straight joint and C19 boarded door with chamfered wood lintel to right. 3-light leaded casement with chamfered wood lintel on each floor between. 2 gabled dormers with leaded casements in middle of roof slope. Integral end stacks, left with dripstones and capping, right retaining dripstone but shaft rebuilt in C20 brown brick. Back wall has 3-light wooden mullion window to left on ground floor of original part and 3-light mullion window with moulded lintel to right. Interior: in process of extensive renovation at time of resurvey (May 1987). Left ground-floor room has chamfered spine beam with stepped stops arid chamfer-stopped joists. Window seat to splay of front window formerly not extending full width as window has been restored to its original width only in late C20; C18 panelled window shutter shows former width of window, 2 left lights having been infilled. Inglenook fireplace with chamfered wood lintel (repaired to centre) and run-out stops has successive bread ovens and later corner seat to left. Former partition running across room to left of entrance has been removed but said to be C19. Partition on right side of entrance is timber framed with wattle and daub infill and C19 tongue and groove boarding applied to left side. 2 plank doors in partition lead to right room (of original part) which has chamfered spine beam and joists and formerly had wattle and daub partition across it. Room to right of this, approached through plank door, has 3 deep-chamfered spine beans and joists, beam to front not tied into wall suggesting that it may have been open to front and supported by corner posts. In this case the room may originally have had an agricultural function: e.g. cowhouse with hay-loft above, not becoming part of domestic accommodation until C18. Infilled inglenook fireplace to right wall. Oak winder staircase to right of fireplace in left room leads to first floor and then, through plank door, continues to attic; infilled chamfered 2-light wooden mullion window to lower flight. Two left first-floor rooms (now knocked into one) have a few wide floor boards and fireplace with chamfered wood lintel to front left corner (to left of ground-floor fireplace); chamfered spine beam and joists with floor boards of attic visible on top of them (note that tie beams of roof tie across attic floor boards but are now concealed by C20 suspended floor). C18 part has wide floor boards and wide plank partition across spine. Winder staircase to attic (separate from attic of main part and with wide floor boards) has sawn-off newel to top. Main attic has trenched double-purlin roof in 3 bays with 2 collar arid tie beam trusses. Plank doors throughout and original moulding to mullions visible internally. [2300]
