5/115 Netherton Cottages including cob wall adjoining to south

GV II

4 cottages, parts were formerly stables, coach house and barn. Probably early C19, renovated circa 1980. Plastered cob on stone rubble footings; rubble stacks topped with C19 and C20 brick; thatch roof. Plan: L-shaped block enclosing north and west sides of former farm courtyard and facing Netherton House (q.v.). At the left (west) end there is a former coach house (now a store-room). To right of it is the former stables (now converted to a 1-room plan cottage) and then 2 cottages, first a 1-room plan cottage, then a 2-room cottage at the right (east) end. Axial stack between the 2 cottages and right end gable-end stack. The 1-room cottage may originally have been stables too. At right angles to rear of the left end a threshing barn between road and courtyard has been cleverly converted to another cottage. All now 2 storeys. Exterior: north-facing front of main block has a regular but not symmetrical 8- window front overall of C19 and replacement C20 casements with glazing bars. All including the large double doors to the former coach house and the cottage doors are C20 and former stables doorway has an overlight. All 3 cottages include a C20 French window to the courtyard. The courtyard side of the former barn has a 3- window front of large C20 casements without glazing bars, the first floor ones with thatch gables over and the right window full height. C20 doorway in the blocking of a larger doorway onto the former threshing floor. The rear (onto the road) includes a single C20 window and the former full height doorway to the former threshing floor is weather-boarded. This wing too is gable-ended. Interiors are mostly the result of C20 modernisation-work and have plain carpentry detail where exposed. The south and east sides of the former farm courtyard are enclosed by a tall wall, most of it cob on stone rubble footings but some of the east wall is wholly stone rubble, and all has slate coping. There were once agricultural buildings in front of the stone section.
