8/102 Chapel Cottages -


House, probably c.1600, altered, restored c.1970. Slobbered rubble with slate roof. 2 storeys. North-east wall has window at left with chamfered surround. To its right, partly above the door, is a window with plain reveals. Further right are 2 small windows with plain reveals. The door has long-and-short jambs and an inner pegged timber frame. Chimneys on gables and to right of door. The south-west wall has irregularly-spaced openings with plain reveals: 7 windows to the ground floor and 4 to the 1st floor. To the right of the left-hand window is a door. Inside are 3 cruck trusses. The central one is fully visible in a hall open to the roof. Its tie beam has been removed and the ridge now rests on the collar. Beside the hearth is a spere formed by a sandstone flag with rails above grooved for wattles. The heck post is chamfered and stopped. To the right of the hearth is a spice cupboard with door missing. Above the north-western end of the hall part of the 1st floor has been retained, now forming a gallery. Below this floor the low-end wall has exposed timber framing in large panels, with 2 timber doorways. Above the floor is decorative plasterwork: a large framed panel has a vine tree and peacocks. At floor level to the right are smaller panels with strapwork decoration, suggesting that the floor may have been inserted. The south-east room has a shouldered fireplace and chamfered and stopped ceiling joists.
