SX 68 NE CHAGFORD

3/17 Cottage approximately 6 metres - north of Thorn Farm Cottage

GV II

Cottage, former barn. C17, possibly earlier, converted to domestic use circa 1980. Large blocks of granite ashlar with some granite stone rubble patching; thatch roof. Plan: long low building built across the hillslope on a north-south axis. It is now a 3-room plan cottage but was originally a threshing barn open to the roof and open from end to end with large nearly central opposing doorways in the long walls (now blocked). Since 1980 it is single storey with attics. Exterior: all the windows (casements with leaded glass above an upper transom) and doorways were put there circa 1980. The west front contains 2 doorways and a casement window at the left end. The window is blocking a small doorway and the present doorway to right of it is blocking a larger original. Another casement window is the north end and 2 more on the east side. East side also has a large blocked doorway and a small slit window near left end. Roof has half-hipped end. Interior: is wholly the result of the circa 1980 conversion. Only the roof structure is older. It is C17 and comprises a series of A-frame trusses with pegged lap- jointed collars and carpenters' assembly marks. This former barn has structural similarities with nearby Court Cottage (q.v.) which is dated 1651. It is one of a varied group of listed buildings which make up the hamlet of Thorn.
