SLAPTON SLAPTON SX8244 Caroline Cottage and 12/102 Churchways Cottage GV II

The right hand 2-room plan section appears to be a C19 schoolroom extension, possibly adapted from an earlier range with a lateral stack at the front which heated the left hand room on the ground floor and one large room on the first floor which was reached by a staircase in the smaller right hand end bay. Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3:2 window front. Late Cl9 2-light casements with glazing bars and 3 small C20 casements, 2 doorway to left and one to right with C19 panelled doors, central door is partly glazed and all have caopies of single slates on shaped brackets. On the right hand end the former schoolroom has C29 glazed first floor doorway and 3 small casements below. Rear elevation 2:3 window range of C20 2 and 3-light casements with glazing bars. C20 conservatory to left of centre and C20 glazed doors. Interior: Only Churchways Cottage accessible at time of survey in 1988. Refurbishment in late Cl9.
