TL 4251 16/131 HARSTON

HIGH STREET (North West Side) No. 53 GV II

Cottage, c.1550 with C17 and C19 additions and alterations. Timber framed, rendered with gault brick casing and steeply pitched, tiled roof with a ridge stack. Plan of three bays and lobby entry. Two storeys. Three recessed windows to each storey. Doorway in C20 brick porch opposite the stack. Interior: Timber framing exposed. Close set studding and curved downward bracing. The partition wall between service end and hall has been retained and shows an original doorway lintel. There is another doorway lintel in the front wall which probably originally led to a cross passage. This suggests that the original entry to the cottage was to a cross passage at the low end of the hall and the lobby entry is a later insertion. There is a shutter groove in the centre room in the front wall. The red brick of the inglenook hearth is late C17 and probably replaces an earlier chimney stack, possible framed. The roof was raised at the same time as the stack was rebuilt. This later framing is of light scantling and has long, straight bracing. R.C.H.M: Record card.
