SX 98 SE LYMPSTONE STRAND (north side), Lympstone

5/57 Nos. 2 & 3 Clay's Cottages - GV II Pair of cottages. C15 or early C16, much altered, especially in the C19. Random rubble plinth, with cob above; brick end wall to left-hand side. Nos. 2 and 3 comprise the hall and inner room respectively of a former 3-room cross-passage plan house, of which the passage and service end have been demolished. The hall was open to the roof and is heavily smoke-blackened; the inner room is divided from the hall by a 2-storeyed partition engaged in a truss, possibly a jointed cruck; the apex of this truss was not closed, however, except possibly by wattles, and smoke consequently lightly blackened the inner room side of the truss. A second stage in the development of the house was the insertion of a smoke bay to the left of the left-hand truss. The inner room may have been of 2 storeys from its inception, and later received a rear wing which is heated by an external lateral stone stack. The medieval roof of the inner room no longer survives and that to the hall has been superseded by a C19 roof that extends over it. When the first floor was inserted in the late C16, it was reached by a stair turret to the rear of the hall that now forms part of no. 1 Clay's Cottages (q.v.). an internal left-hand stack is a late- C19 insertion. 2 storeys. Front: 2-window range, with 2-light C19 casement windows under depressed arches. C20 window to either side of central door to No. 3 left-hand end with 2 C20 windows to both floors and doorway (to no. 2). Interior: chamfered ceiling beams, one (to no. 3) with hollow step stops. Framed partition between hall and inner room. Roof: 2 medieval trusses, possibly jointed crucks cranked collars, diagonal ridge piece, trenched purlins and some rafters all smoke blackened. Smoke bay of cob and wattle, to the passage side of the lower end hall truss. The hall appears to have been of one bay only.
