Details

BOW BOW (south side) SS 70 SW 2/22 Nos. 1-5 (inclusive) Dukes - Cottages

- II

5 cottages. Probably late C16-early C17, much rebuilt in C18. Plastered cob on rubble footings; stone rubble stacks topped with C20 brick; thatch roof. Row of 5 1-room plan cottages facing north under continuous roof. No. 1 at left (east) end was renovated circa 1984 with new slate-roofed extension on end recessed from front. Nos. 1 and 2 share axial stack in party wall which serves back-to-back fireplaces. No. 3 has left end axial stack and Nos. 4 and 5 have right end stacks, the latter projecting from end. 2 storeys. Irregular overall 8-window front of various C19 and C20 casements most with glazing bars. No. 1 has 1-window front of circa 1984 PVC casements and left of 2 ground floor window occupies site of original door which was blocked and moved to extension in circa 1984. Nos. 2, 3, and 4 have C19 doors in the original positons. No. 4 has exposed rubble footings. No. 5 has a 2-window front and first floor right 3-light casement has rectangular panes of leaded Igass in outer panes and may be as old as late C18. Left of 2 ground floor casements in position of original doorway. Present doorway in C20 corrugated iron roofed outshot on the end. Roof is half-hipped at each end. Interiors show mainly plain carpentry detail but some late C16-early C17 timbers are exposed. For instance both No. 4 and 5 have chamfered and step stopped crossbeams, both with later oak scarfed onto rear end. Possibly these timbers are reused. Roof not inspected but bases of principals suggest C18 A-frame trusses surviving. The row was formerly known as The Barracks and the tradition that they were used to house Napoleonic prisoners-of-war was confirmed by discovery of several coat buttons in rear gardens.
