COLEBROOKE COLEFORD SS 70 SE 3/111 Homeleigh 26.8.65


Cottage. C17 with C19 alterations. Plastered cob on rubble footings, cob stack topped with C19 brick; thatch roof to main house, corrugated iron roof to service outshot. 1-room plan cottage facing north-west with secondary service outshot to rear. Homeleigh is in a row of cottages with Forge House (q.v.) adjoining to left (north- east) and Pennycott (q.v.) adjoining to right. Main room has stack in left party wall where stack is shared with Forge House. 2 storeys. 2-window front of C20 casements with glazing bars. C20 door on right side with small window above. Roof is gable-ended to left and continuous with roof of Pennycott to right. C19 rear service outshot with leanto roof on lesser pitch than main room. Interior: main room has roughly-finished plain chamfered crossbeam and stone rubble fireplace has soffit-chamfered and scroll stopped oak lintel and includes a large brick-lined oven on right side. Roof not inspected. Although Homeleigh is taller and wider than adjoining Forge House the stack is shared with similar back-to-back fireplaces and therefore is thought to be contemporary. It is also probably contemporary with adjoining Pennycott and Corner Cottage (q.v.) together with which it forms a row of similar cottages. Coleford is a remarkably unspoilt and picturesque hamlet.
