WINKLEIGH SS 61 SW 6/142 West Gosland Down II House. Mid C17 with C20 alterations. Rendered cob walls. Gable-ended thatch roof. Projecting rendered cob and rubble stack at right gable end with brick shaft. Plan: 2-room plan with larger heated room to the right, there may originally have been a cross-passage. Integral outbuilding at left-hand end was converted to part of the accommodation in the later C20. Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4-window front of 2-light casements - early C20 on the 1st floor apart from a single light late C20 casement to the left and circa mid C20 below. All windows are in small probably original openings. Late C20 hipped tiled roof porch to right of centre with contemporary plank door in right- hand side set in pegged wooden frame with cambered head. Stable-type door towards left-hand end. Interior: right-hand room has open fireplace with chamfered and convex-stopped wooden lintel. Lintels to the windows and front doorway are also chamfered and stopped. Closely spaced roughly chamfered cross beams. The 1st floor front windows also have chamfered and stopped lintels and possibly original window seats in 2 steps with moulded edges - one is carved with the initials J. W. and another W.C. with the date 183... Probably original roof trusses consisting of straight principals with curved collars chamfered on their soffit, set into the trusses and pegged on. This is a surprisingly complete small C17 house which retains a number of features that do not normally survive.
