COLDRIDGE COLDRIDGE SS 60 NE 1/34 Nos 1 and 2 Sunnyside Cottages - GV II

3 cottages. Probably C16 origins, apparently much rebuilt in late C17-early C18 when single house divided into 2 and third cottage added probably later in C18, both modernised circa 1980. Plastered cob on rubble footings; cob stacks with plastered C20 brick tops; thatch roof and slate to C19 store extension. Long south-facing range containing 3 cottages. No. 1 at the right (east) end is a 2-room plan cottage with central lobby entrance and central axial stack serving back-to-back fireplaces. This part appears to be wholly late C17-early C18 with C20 service extension to rear. No. 2 in centre and left still comprises 2 self- contained cottages. The central cottage has 3-room plan with its central room served by an axial stack on left (west) end. This part contains work of several periods and has C20 service extension to rear. Left end cottage has now 1-room plan but formerly comprised 2 rooms. It has projecting end stack, and appears C18 work throughout. C20 outshot on left end and C19 store set back from front at same end. No. 1 has a regular, almost symmetrical, 2-window front of C20 casements with glazing bars and central C20 plank door. No. 2 has a less regular 5-window arrangement of C20 casements hardly any with glaxing bars. The front projects forward for the left 3 windows even though the break between the 2 cottages is further left. In fact the original doorway to the centre cottage is blocked by the right window of this forward section. It is now replaced by C20 door at right end. Left end cottage thus has 2-window arrangement with central door, now C20. Continuous roof is gable-ended to right and hipped to left. Left outshot has monopitch roof of C20 asbestos slates and C19 store has C19 slate roof coated with concrete and hipped at end. Interior: No. 1 fireplaces are stone rubble built with plain soffit-chamfered oak lintels. The joist ceilings have been replaced and roof is not accessible. No. 2: The central cottage has small right room with C17 half beams against cob crosswalls either side; both chamfered with scroll stops. The original doorway to rear includes a papered-over C16 oak shoulder-headed door. The middle room has possibly replacement ceiling of plain joists of large scantling. The rubble fireplace has its high oak lintel obscured and includes a cloam oven. The roof over this cottage is inaccessible. The left cottage has a rubble fireplace with naturally arching and roughly-finished oak lintel and inserted or relined C19 brick oven. The 2-bay roof here is carried on an A-frame truss with pegged and nailed lap-jointed collar.
