GREAT SHELFORD CHURCH STREET (South Side) Nos 15, 17 and 19

(Formerly listed as Nos 17, 19 and 21)


Row of three cottages, possibly originally a guildhall. Early-mid C16. Converted to a house and re-roofed in mid-late C17 and subdivided into three cottages early C19. Timber framed part rendered with late C17 hipped roof of plain tiles and ridge stack of gault brick contemporary with the roof. Plan of single range in four bays. Two storeys with the first floor jettied to the road. The jetty beam is unmoulded and is carried on four jetty brackets. There is no wall bracing visible. The framing and plan are similar to Guildhall at Whittlesford, Cambs. The fenestration and door openings date from the time of the subdivision to cottages in early C19. Four horizontal sliding sashes with small panes. The sites of two original window openings are visible in the front wall and one in a gable end. Three early C19 doorways with boarded doors. The one to the centre cottage is possibly on the site of the original doorway. Interior: The house has always been floored and the two centre bays have a ceiling with well carpentered and substantial unmoulded joists, laid flat. The intersecting chamfered main beams have broach stops. The brickwork of the inglenook hearth obscures the stop of the main beam indicating that the hearth has been rebuilt or possibly inserted when the guildhall was converted to a house. There is a shutter groove for a window in the rear wall of the ground floor centre room. At first floor the chamfered, cambered tie beams are visible. They are arch braced. Staggered butt purlin roof of slender scantling, typical of late C17. R.C.H.M: record card.
