MARIANSLEIGH ALSWEAR Oak Cottage and Thatch Cottage


House, divided into 2. C17 or earlier origins, C20 renovations. Stone rubble, Thatch Cottage plastered; thatched roof, gabled at ends; left end stack and projecting front lateral stack with bread oven and tall stone shaft to main range, end stack with stone shaft to rear wing. Plan: T plan, details not entirely clear on survey (1987) as interior of Oak Cottage only inspected. The front range is probably 3-rooms on plan, 2-rooms (and possibly a passage) to the right (Thatch Cottage). There are few early features visible in the front range at the left (Oak Cottage) but the rear wing is a circa mid C17 kitchen. It seems likely that the front range is earlier in origin but has been rebuilt at least at the left end in the C18 or C19. Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 1:2 window front, Oak Cottage to the left. C20 front door to Oak Cottage with a direct entrance into the right hand room, door to Thatch Cottage to left of the lateral stack. 2 windows to Oak Cottage; C20 casements. Thatch cottage has plastic windows in embrasures of different sizes. The rear elevation of Oak Cottage has pigeon holes under the eaves. Interior: Oak cottage inspected. The rear wing has a C17 hollow-chamfered crossbeam with exposed joists and a good open fireplace with a chamfered timber lintel and a bread oven. The front range is largely modernized. Roof: The remains of a side-pegged jointed cruck truss survives in the rear wing, the truss cut off below collar level. Group value with Riverside and White Hart.
