3/186 Cottage approximately 3 metres - east of Chapple Farmhouse

GV II

Disused cottage. Late C16-early C17. Coursed blocks of granite ashlar with some granite stone rubble patching; disused granite stack; corrugated iron roof. Plan: small cottage facing west onto the road and built down the hillslope. It originally had a 2-room plan but the internal division removed in C20. Before that the larger right-hand (southern) room had a gable-end stack with the remains of the orignal newel stair alongside to left. This has been replaced by an external stone stair on the front. According to the owners, when last inhabited, the unheated room was used to keep a cow. 2 storeys. Exterior: a flight of external steps rise up to the front wall to a first floor doorway near the right end. To left of it is a timber casement with glazing bars on each floor. All the joinery is late C19 - early C20. The roof is gable-ended. The downhill gable end is blind except for the doorway to the main room toward the left. An old millstone is used as a step. The unheated room has a doorway in the rear wall which also includes a blocked window to the main room. Interior is well-preserved and mostly late C16 - early C17. The main room crossbeam is soffit-chamfered with step stops, the same finish as the oak lintel of the granite fireplace. Remains of stone newel stairs alongside. The ground floor partition has been removed and the first floor structure is now supported there by a C20 beam. The roof contains the extensive remains of the original 2-bay structure. It is carried on a true cruck truss with an unusually narrow collar. The apex has been mutilated and the ridge replaced. It has a single set of threaded purlins and in the northern end wall there is the remains of a hip cruck. This cottage is one of an attractive group of listed buildings which make up the hamlet of Chapple which includes Chapple Farmhouse (q.v) and West Chapple (q.v) and their associated farmbuildings.
