FORE STREET (north side), Dolton

SS 5712 14/73

Cobb Cottage


House. Mid Cl7 with circa early C18 addition. Rendered cob walls. Gable ended thatch roof. Brick axial stack to wing, projecting rear lateral stack of rendered rubble with brick shaft. Plan: originally 2-room plan with small unheated dairy at centre which has entrance lobby in front of it. The left-hand room is also unheated; the larger right-hand room is heated by a rear lateral fireplace with an adjoining straight-run staircase in rectangular projection. Wing added at front of left-hand room in C18 with kitchen and unheated room beyond it which may have been of non-domestic use and has no room above. Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2-window front of mid-late C20 large 2-light diamond leaded pane casements. C20 part-glazed door to their left. The wing projects beyond it with a small outbuilding projecting from its inner face. At rear is integral rectangular projection for lateral stack and stairs. Interior: right-hand room has chamfered cross beam and fireplace with chamfered and ogee-stopped wooden lintel which has had modern grate inserted. C18 built-in curved shelves with fielded panel doors to cupboard below. Forming a passage on the 1st floor is an original chamfered plank-and-muntin screen which extends at right angles to form the partition to the end bedroom. Visible on the 1st floor are the feet of substantial straight principal rafters with threaded or trenched purlins - these are probably also Cl7 but lack of access to roof space prevents a fuller inspection. Despite the insertion of modern windows this house retains a considerable amount of interest in its well-preserved plan form and the unusual existence of plank-and muntin screens on the 1st floor.
