CHULMLEIGH EAST STREET (south side), SS 6814 -6914 Chulmleigh 7/64 Spindleberry, Kelly's and Kethane Cottages 3.10.75 (Kelly's Cottage) GV II Row of 3 cottages. C16 but possibly earlier fabric survives. Painted rendered stone rubble and cob. Thatch roof with gable ends. Stone rubble stack at left end, axial brick stack and 2 rendered rear stacks towards right end. Plan: as only interior of Spindleberry Cottage was available at time of survey, the full plan and development could not be assessed. The range was occupied as 5 single room plan cottages within living memory, reduced to 3 cottages in late C20. Spindleberry at left end, of 2 rooms with direct entry into right-hand room and staircase running up beside front wall of left-hand room, incorporates 2 of the former cottages. Kelly's Cottage to the centre returns to single room plan but with C20 flat roofed 2 storey extension to rear. Direct entry into the front room which is heated by rear lateral stack and has staircase running up beside left-hand wall. Kethane Cottage at the right end has been much altered in C20, and incorporates the 2 remaining cottages. The entry into the left-hand room is from the through-passage at the left end, with direct entry into the right-hand room which is heated by rear lateral stack. The interior of Spindleberry Cottage suggests that the left-hand room was an early C17 addition, and that the right-hand room, Kelly's Cottage and part of Kethane Cottage may originally have formed a single tenement possibly of 3 room and through-passage type. Exterior: 2 storeys. Spindleberry has 2 window range. 3 light casements, 3 panes per light on each floor, those to upper storey are C19, those to ground floor are C20 replacements. Kelly's Cottage has single C20 3-light casement on each floor. Kethane has 3-window range, all C20 fenestration, 3-light casements to upper storey. 3 principal doorways all have thatched hoods. Plank door to left end of Kethane Cottage. Interior of Spindleberry Cottage only inspected. Right-hand room has chamfered cross ceiling beam and bressumer with keel stops. Left-hand room has ovolo moulded fireplace lintel with deep chamfered bressumer above. No access to roofspace but very possibly an early roof structure survives.
