12/108 The Old Cottage (Formerly - listed as No. 64) 25.2.65 - II

House, possibly originally farmhouse, late medieval open hall with floor inserted, probably C16. Whitewashed cob with 2 rubble outshuts to rear. Thatched roof with gable ends, slate lean-to roofs to outshuts. Brick stacks at left and right gable ends and large lateral hall stack at front with slated offsets, upper parts in brick. 3 cell through-passage plan but lower end appears to have been rebuilt late C17 or early C18 with large stopped and chamfered beam and unusual 'beehive'-shaped hearth with rounded brick and rubble back. Ridge purlin extends slightly over lower end but has been sawn off at rebuilding. 2 storey, 4 window range. Lower end has 2-light wooden casement (6 panes each light). Hall window under slate roof has been brought forward flush with edge of lateral stack and large C20 3-light window inserted. Timber sash 3 panes over 3 panes above. Early timber 2-light casement to right of stack with 3 panes to left and 6 panes with large pane to right over slate- roofed projecting porch with wooden side benches. C20 door with 3-paned overlight. Upper end has sash 3 panes over 3 panes over 2-light casement (6 panes each light). Scantling timber panels with rubble and brick infill to through-passage. Rear through-passage plank door is ½ glazed with small panes. Scarfed beam at upper end roughly chamfered and stopped. Jointed cruck at upper end, no smoke-blackening. 2 intermediate trusses, heavily patched, probably C17 (?) but smoke-blackened sawn-off rafters and some battening survives over hall. Lower end truss is probably contemporary with the rebuilding
