SY6871 WAKEHAM, Easton 969-1/4/77 (West side) 21/09/78 No.167 Tudor Cottage


Wide frontage house in row. Late C17. Thin-bedded rubble, some large squared stone block, asbestos-cement roof. Originally may have been a two-room cross-passage plan, but later modifications have obscured interpretation. Two storeys and attic, 2-windowed. At first floor a C20 3-light casement and a 3-light stone-mullioned window above two 4-paned sashes, with chamfer surrounds to first floor and ground floor left. Stone cheeked porch with weathered stone slab roof over early 6-panel fielded door down two steps from pavement. To the right, set low, part of former bread oven exposed. Rendered stack to left. The back wall, 1.1m thick, includes a small pointed 2-light window from one stone set in deep embrasure; this now covered by lean-to; there is also an early pent-roofed wing at the S side. Back wall is in large squared stone block. Interior retains much early fabric, including remains of heavy tie-beam trusses from which the main tie has been removed, and 2 rough purlins; at attic level remains of stack at south end. First floor has transverse beam with small ovolo mould, and a very small arched fireplace over small C19 grate. The stair at left end has plank and muntin screenwork and a C17 wide 3-plank beaded door on battens; various good 4-panel C18 doors. At ground floor in the right half are the remains of a compartmental ceiling with run-out stops to chamfers, a fireplace with stone cheeks to large wood bressumer, and a steep spiral stair in wood. Inside the front entry are large stone slabs blocking a former doorway. A date of c 1680 has been postulated, but an earlier date seems possible. The property was in the gift of St. Andrew's Church (qv). It is one of the most interesting survivals in Wakeham, where major changes seem to have occurred in the C19 and C20.
