1/91 September Cottage 16.10.81 (formerly listed under Toppesfield Road)

- II

Cottage. C.1600, extended in C17. Timber framed, plastered, roof thatched. 4 bays facing NW, the right bay being a short one containing an axial stack. One-bay extension to right, C17. One storey with attics. 2 C19 horizontally sliding sashes of 12 lights, one C19 casement of 12 lights. One horizontally sliding sash of 12 lights in gabled dormer. Plain boarded door. Inscription H I E 1718 in oval raised border in plastered gable of dormer. The original building has jowled posts, curved braces trenched inside the studding, and a clasped purlin roof with arched wind bracing. The left bay has longitudinal plain joists of horizontal section, raised. The middle part has a chamfered transverse beam with lamb's tongue stops. To left of this beam the joists are of horizontal section and chamfered. To right of it the joists are of vertical section and plain. Large wood-burning hearth reduced for stove. The right bay has unjowled posts, a chamfered axial beam without stops, and plain joists of vertical section. The short bay at the right end of the original cottage was constructed for a timber framed chimney, larger than the present stack. Both of its tiebeams have been removed, and the substitution of some joists became necessary because the original joists were not long enough to reach the present stack. Some early floorboards. Early winder stair to rear of stack.
