SY6681SW WEST END, Radipole 873-1/11/508 (South side) 07/08/73 Nos.4 and 5 West End Cottages

GV II

Pair of houses. Dated EB 1731 (Buckler or Bristow), with late C20 extensions at each end. Rubble, concrete tile roof, formerly thatched. A long, single-depth building adjoining a small stream which joins the River Wey near Causeway House (qv). The overall form and layout could be from the C17, but substantial external and internal changes have been made. In 2 storeys; the entrance front, facing N, has an early 2-light casement and a C20 9-pane light at the eaves, with the inscribed flush stone panel between. At ground floor, with an extension to the left, is a small 2-light (part of No.4), then a wide plank door with inserted square light, and a fixed light. To the right is a flat-roofed extension. There are 2 ridge stacks, at the gables of the original building. The S side has four 2- and 3-light early casements at the eaves, under a deep plain wooden eaves board, and 3- or 4-light to the ground floor, with a C20 door in an original openings. To left is the flat-roofed extension, and to right a more sympathetic full-height addition with swept-down roof. INTERIOR: inspected only at ground floor; it has low ceiling heights characteristic of the C17 or earlier, and a large rebuilt fireplace with wood bressumer at the W end. From its form and location, and the provision of a dated plaque, it seems likely that this was originally a mill building. The Buckler family owned the nearby great house, but the family here is reputed to have been Bristow. (RCHME: Dorset, South-East: London: 1970-: 365).
