10/101 Lower Halstock Cottage - approximately 170 metres to north-north-east of Lower Halstock Farmhouse)

- II

Longhouse. Probably C16 although the earliest surviving dateable features are C17. Altered in C20. Granite rubble walls. Gable ended corrugated iron roof becoming lower over the shippon. Tall (axial) rendered stone rubble stack with dripcourses, brick stack at left gable end. Plan: Simple longhouse plan of shippon at lower end to the right with cross passage, hall and inner room above it to the left. The passage was originally separated from the shippon by only a lower partition and still has no room above it. The hall stack backs onto the passage, the inner room may originally have been unheated. In the C20 a bathroom was inserted at the rear of the passage. 2 storeys over house, one storey to shippon right. Asymmetrical 2 window front of C20 2-light casements with glazing bars, the ground floor right-hand window has a central light with narrow side lights. Wide C19 door into shippon to right of centre. C19 leanto in front of shippon. The front has C19 leanto at centre which incorporates an open-fronted porch behind which is a wide C20 plank door to the passage. A wide doorway has been inserted into the shippon to the left beyond which is a ventilation slit. Interior: Hall has blocked granite framed fireplace whose lintel appears to be hollow chamfered. Chamfered ceiling beam. The shippon retains its central drain with the drain hole at the lower end. The roof timbers were replaced in the C19. This simple building survives in a traditional form with its shippon still unconverted and sited virtually on open moorland in what must originally have been a very isolated setting, still fairly remote.
