7/31 Midstream Cottage and Briony


Pair of cottages. C18, extended in C19. Rendered stone rubble and cob walls. Gable ended asbestos slate roof. 3 brick stacks, one at each gable end and one axial stack which is rendered. The cottages are probably co-eval but not identical: Midstream Cottage was originally one room whereas Briony has 2 rooms, a parlour to the left and a kitchen- living room to the right the other side of the passage. In the C19 a stable was added at its right-hand end which was converted to further accommodation in the C20. Late C19/early C20 outshuts added at rear. 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 5-window front, Mainstream Cottage to the left has a 2- window front. 1-window C19 extension at the right-hand end of Briony. Mainstream Cottage has a C19 3-light casement to the left and single light casement to the right on the first floor. 3-light early C20 casement to the left on ground floor with a C19 gabled porch to its right which has a C20 hardboard door. Briony has early C20 3-light casements on the ground floor and later C20 2-light casements on the first floor to left and right with a C19 2-light casement at the centre. The porch at the centre is identical to the other with a C19 panelled and glazed door behind. At the left-hand end of the 2 cottages is a single storey C18 cob outbuilding belonging to the adjacent inn and probably originally its stable; it is L-shaped, running back at right angles to the 2 cottages. Interior of Briony has a C18 chimneypiece with moulded surround to the left-hand room. Its roof timbers are puzzling because although constructed of hardwood suggesting quite an early date they are bolted together.
