2/91 Nos. 1, 2 3, 4, 5 & 6 Church 10.1.85 Steps Cottages


Row of 6 cottages. Nos. 5 & 6 are late C16 (possibly earlier); No.4 probably C17, and the remainder C18 or early C19. Roughcast cob on stone footings; gabled-end corrugated-iron roof to Nos.3, 4, 5 & 6, slate to Nos. 1 & 2. The plan is very difficult to reconstruct; it seems likely that Nos. 5 & 6 were originally a small 3-room, through-passage plan house, the door to No.5 masking the site of the passage, with the higher end to the right (the hall and inner room now No.6 with a door inserted when conversion to cottages was completed; the hall chamber belongs to No.5); there is a little evidence to suggest a rear lateral stack to heat the hall; lower-end stack (now axial, formerly at the end) with brick shaft; right-hand end stack, and axial stacks to the other cottages. No.4 is an early extension to the service end of Nos. 5 & 6 and like them, of jointed cruck construction. The other cottages are C18 or early C19; all of one room, single-depth plan, the doorway giving directly into the front room; No.1 has a small barn extension, now partly converted to accommodation. 2 storeys. Front: No.1 with one 4 pane sash, a 2-light casement, and one blocked window to 1st floor, and a sahs window and late-C20 door below; No.2 with one blocked and one early C19 2-light casement window to 1st floor, a 2:2:2 pane canted bay with a planked door with rectangular fanlight to ground floor; No.3 with one 2-light casement window to both floors, and a panelled door; No.4 similar to No.3, but the windows not arranged regularly; No.5 is bigger, with 2 early C19 2-light casement windows to 1st floor, the embrasures possibly older, the lintels at eaves level; 2 later 2-light casement windows and a wide doorway below. No.6 with three 2- and 3- light casement windows similar to those of No.5; one 2- and one 3-light casement windows with door between, below. Rear: outshut under catslide to Nos. 5 & 6; leantos to others. Interior: one jointed cruck to No.4 and No.6 (No.5 not inspected internally). Roofs with straight principals to Nos. 1, 2 and 3).
