1/135 LITTLE LONG END

II

Cottage, said to have been converted from a barn. Circa C17 or early C18 barn converted in circa mid C19 and extended in late C19 or early C20. Weatherboarded timber frame. Plain tile roof with half-hipped ends. Red brick external gable end stacks with tiled set-offs, brick cornices and clay pots.

Plan: Circa C17 or early C18 3-bay barn converted in circa mid C19 into a 2-room plan cottage. Both rooms are heated from gable end stacks, the smaller left hand (west) room is the kitchen and the right hand room is the parlour. Between the 2 rooms there is a straight staircase rising from a lobby at the front, to the right of which is the front doorway giving directly into the right hand room. The porch, the small single storey unheated outshut at the left end and the larger unheated single storey outshut behind the left room are late C19 or early C20 additions.

Exterior: 2 storeys. Not quite symmetrical 2-window south front, the windows disposed a little to the left. C19 2-light and 16-pane casements. Central doorway with later weatherboarded gabled porch with C20 glazed door.

Projecting gable end brick stacks; the left (west) end has later single storey weatherboarded outshut with a corrugated iron lean-to roof. Similar outshut on right of rear elevation and similar C19 casements with glazing bars on rear and at right hand (east) end.

Interior: Appears to have been little altered since C19 and has plastered ceilings, plank doors and simple wooden chimneypieces, the left hand with mantel-shelf and C20 range, the right hand fireplace blocked in brick.

Originally a 3-bay barn, its tie-beams have been removed from either side of the central bay; the 8 wall posts are intact but the arch braces to the missing tie-beams are also missing. The clasped side-purlin roof has flat common rafters halved and pegged at the apex.
