SS834000 DEAN STREET 672-1/6/25 (East side) 11/10/72 No.43


Small house. Probably late C18, re-using earlier material; C20 alterations. Roughcast, mostly cob with some stone and brick walling; gabled red pantile roof; internal right end stack with brick shaft; lean-to with corrugated asbestos roof; cast iron gutters on slender brackets. Plan: Entrance to right on front directly into the single principal room heated by the right end stack; narrow service room and stair to the rear. Lean-to adjoining the left end is probably a later addition. Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 1-window front plus one window to the lean-to. Doorway to the left with late C20 door; one first and one ground floor window, both late C20 timber casements with glazing bars. Small C20 window to lean-to; C20 casement on right return, lighting service room. Interior: remodelled in C20. Roof includes remains of probably late C16 or early C17 jointed cruck, re-used upside down. Inspection during renovation (c.1988) revealed extensive re-used material and patching to the walls: house possibly erected using material scavenged after the 1743 fire of Crediton. An increasingly rare example of a very small urban cottage, unextendable due to its restricted plot. Group value with the Plymouth Inn (q.v.) and other buildings in Dean Street which escaped C18 Crediton fires.

Images of England

Images of England was a photographic record of every listed building in England, created as a snap shot of listed buildings at the turn of the millennium. These photographs of the exterior of listed buildings were taken by volunteers between 1999 and 2008. The project was supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
