Details

SHEPRETH FOWLMERE ROAD TL 3947 21/310 No. 2 (Corner Cottage) GV II

Cottage, sub-divided in early C19, and now a single dwelling. Early-mid C18, extended. Clay bat on flint plinth, with plaster rendered walls and long straw thatch roof, hipped. Ridge stack of clay bat except for upper which are grey brick. Original cottage of two bays, extended to north west and south east. Two storeys. Three original wood frame casements with leaded lights and original casement fastenings at first floor. Two at ground floor and two boarded doors. The enlargements are of late C18 or early C19. Clay bat, plaster rendered and thatched. Inside: The flint plinth of the original yable end wall to the north west is visible between the two ground floor rooms. There are abutting small fireplaces of clay bat now partly sealed, but the size would suggest a later reconstruction. There is an original framed partition wall associated with the staircase at the side of the stack. It seems that the cottage originated as one dwelling, was converted in early C19 to two, and is now one. The small abutting hearths and the doors would suggest a c.1800 date. The roof structure which is uniform in scantling, and the evidence of the 1764 Estate Map points to the early-mid C18 date.
