DUNTON BASSETT MAIN STREET (East Side) SP59 SW 3/20 Old Hall Cottage

GV II Cottage, formerly three dwellings, forming a row at right angles to the street. The earliest is C17, the others probably later additions of the C18 to Cl9. The earliest unit is timber framed, partially rendered over but probably with brick panel infill, and thatched roof. Other units also rendered probably over brick with low pitched Welsh slate roofs. Original block is of post and truss construction with two unit plan, six panels long and three high, though some of the members are now rendered over. No sill beam is visible above the granite plinth. Some straight arch bracing at angles and centrally. Lean-to porch addition at ground floor level, but a 2-light casement window to each floor beyond it. Curved arch braces in the gable, and curved principals, which cross at the apex. Queen struts below the collar, a King strut above it. Central doorway to rear is flanked by 3-light casement windows. Axial stack. The doorway in the front elevation is in a large modern gabled porch at junction of this unit and the lower later block beyond. Both the later parts are of single unit plan with gable end stacks though one of these has been removed, and each has a single 3-light casement window on each floor.
