4/322 Axworthy Cottage - II

Small house. Circa early C16 core, substantial C20 alterations. Whitewashed stone rubble, partly rendered to the first floor, there may be some cob to the first floor. Thatched roof gabled at ends, rendered stack at right end. The original plan may have been an open hall of 2-bays with a through passage and lower end room. In the C17 the hall was probably ceiled over and the gabled end stack added. A single- storey lean-to at the rear is probably circa C19. The passage no longer exists and the present plan is 2-rooms wide with a direct entry into the right-hand room. 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2-window front with an off centre front door under a C20 thatched porch. Ground floor windows C20 casements with glazing bars, 2 first floor windows are 2-light casements, 6-panes per light. Interior 1 truss over the higher end has chamfered principals with curved feet and a replaced chamfered cambered collar mortised and pegged into the principals. 2-tiers of threaded purlins visible, some replaced, but the original purlins are chamfered and stopped. The right-hand stops of the purlins have been cut off by the chimney breast suggesting that it is an insertion. The truss is ceiled over above collar level and has been painted below the ceiling, but may be smoke-blackened at the apex. No access to the apex at time of survey, 1985. The principals of the lower end truss are plain. The ground floor fireplace has a rough timber lintel and stone rubble jambs. The ground floor carpentry is largely C20.
