UPLOWMAN WHITNAGE ST 01 NW 4/194 Whitnage Chart and Shapcott - Cottage GV II

2 cottages. Mid-late Cl7. Plastered stone rubble, maybe with some cob; stone rubble stacks topped with C20 brick; thatch roof. Plan: pair of cottages built along the lane facing north. Whitnage Chart is the left (eastern) cottage. It has a 2-room plan. The right room is the larger and it has an axial stack backing onto the unheated left room. A newel stair rises alongside the fireplace. C20 service outshot to rear of the left room. Shapcott Cottage is the right (western) cottage. It has a 1-room plan with a gable-end stack. Although Shapcott Cottage was unavailable for inspection at the time of this survey it seems likely that it and the main room of Whithage Chart are a pair of contemporary 1-room plan of cottages, each a mirror plan of the other. The second room of Whitnage Chart looks contemporary but might have been an agricultural or storage room. 2 storeys. Exterior: overall irregular 3-window front. All 3 first floor windows and the ground floor one at the right end are original oak-framed windows with flat-faced mullions. They contain rectangular panes of leaded glass and the iron casements have ornate wrought iron casements. The other windows are C20 casements with glazing bars. The cottage doorways are next to each other and both contain C20 part-glazed doors. The roof is gable-ended. Interior: only Whitnage Chart was available for inspection at the time of this survey. In the main room the oak lintel of the stone rubble fireplace and the axial beam are both soffit-chamfered with scroll stops. The second room has an unstopped soffit-chamfered axial beam. The roofspace is inaccessible althought the bases of straight principles show, their scantling large enough to indicate that the roof retains its original Cl7 A-frame trusses.
