3/16 Halls and Halls Cottage -

- II

2 cottages. Late C17 with early C19 refurbishment; circa 1970 extension. Plastered cob on large pebble foundations; stacks apparently rebuilt with C19 brick; corrugated iron roof (formerly thatch), slate to the extension and outshot. 2 adjoining cottages under a continuous gable-ended roof facing west. Halls is the 2-room cottage on the right (southern) end, the inner room served by an axial stack and the outer room by a slightly projecting (early C19 replacement) end stack. Halls is the 1-room cottage on the left (northern) end with an end stack and a C20 single storey extension on the end but recessed from the front. Along the rear of both cottages is a continuous secondary slate-roofed outshot. Main block is 2 storeys. The main block has an overall regular but not symmetrical 4-window front of late C19 and C20 casements with glazing bars, 3 to Halls and 1 to Halls Cottage. Halls has a C20 flat-roofed porch in front of its central doorway. The left end of the main block (Halls Cottage) appears to have been rebuilt in plastered brick or stone rubble at some time since the wall narrows in thickness abruptly there and in order to keep the same eaves it corbels out at the top with a pair of broad ovolo mouldings. The original doorway to Halls Cottage was probably at the left end but circa 1970 was moved to the end wall through a porch in front of the contemporary extension. Interior. In Halls the inner room fireplace is blocked and the outer room fireplace is early C19 with the rebuilt stack. The inner room has a C17 axial beam, soffit- chamfered with 1 scroll stop left whilst the outer room has a plain soffit-chamfered crossbeam. The roof structure was replaced circa 1930. In Halls Cottage the fireplace is blocked by a C20 grate and the late 017 crossbeam has a plain soffit chamfer. The roof here was not inspected. Despite C19 and C20 alterations the basic form of the C17 cottages remain and they are an attractive pair.
