8/142 No. 2 River Hill Cottages

GV II

House. Early C16, altered in C17. Timber framed, plastered, roofed with handmade red clay tiles. 3 bays facing SW, at right angles to No. 3 River Hill Cottages and connecting with it at the left end. Internal stack at rear of left bay. Internal stack at right end of middle bay against rear wall. One storey with attics. 3 C20 casements and 3 more in gabled dormers. C20 door at front of small lean-to porch. Full-length jetty, underbuilt but visible externally. NE elevation (facing Owl's Hill), 2 C20 casements, C20 door at side of lean-to porch. The left bay has an exceptionally wide wood-burning hearth with cambered mantel beam, effectively the same length as the bay, probably part of a timber framed chimney of which nothing else is exposed, reduced for a modern stove. The other stack has a chamfered straight mantel beam with plain stops, for a wood-burning hearth, reduced for a C20 grate. Chamfered axial beam with lamb's tongue stops, raised at the hearth end on a short post with similar detail, with Cl9/C20 joists. Jowled posts, close studding, shutter groove for unglazed window below jetty. The SW wall has subsided unevenly and has been raised approx. 0.50 metre with an additional wallplate, and the roof rebuilt. This subsidence probably accounts for the raising of the first floor also. RCHM 17.
