TQ59NE WYATT'S GREEN ROAD 723-1/5/54 (South West side) The Cottage


Wrongly shown on OS map as The Old Cottage. House. c1600 and mid-C17, extended c1984. Timber-framed, weatherboarded, roofed with handmade red clay tiles. 2-bay range facing NE, the left bay c1600, the right bay mid-C17, with C18 external stack at left end, and small C20 lean-to extension at right end. Parallel range to rear, c1984, extending to left of main range, with external stack at left end. 2 storeys. 2-window range of C18/19 horizontal sashes of 6+6 lights, with early sheet glass and some handmade glass, and simple moulded surrounds. C20 door at front of gabled porch with tiled roof. INTERIOR: the left bay has jowled posts, straight bracing inside heavy studding (rising braces at front and back, down braces at the sides), much original wattle and daub infill, and an unglazed window in the left side on the first floor, complete with diamond mullions, now concealed by exterior and interior finishes. Chamfered axial beam with lamb's tongue stops, plain joists of vertical section. The rear wallplate is severed for 2 doorways. Clasped purlin roof, ceiled to the soffits of the collars. The right bay has posts with square-cut jowls as found in early New England houses, primary straight bracing, heavy studs tenoned at top and bottom but mostly not pegged. Floor structure similar to that of left bay. Both floors are reported to be of oak boards, but now concealed by C20 softwood boards for levelling. Roof of right bay rebuilt in softwood in C19, with ridge. Rear wallplate severed for one doorway. This is an unusually interesting example of the typical structural differences between timber-framed construction of c1600 and later in the C17, conservatively renovated 1983-8. The windows and early glass merit special care.
