6/145 The Old Smithy and The Penny School

GV II

2 cottages. Probably mid C19, enlarged late C19 and C20. Plastered cob on rubble footings; stone or cob stack topped with brick; thatched roof. C20 extensions of plastered blockwork with pantile or corrugated asbestos roofs. Originally a pair of 2-room cottages with mirror plans either side of central axial stack. Faces south east. The Old Smithy to left, the Penny School to right. The Penny School extended one bay in late C19 and again circa 1980. The Old Smithy extended in C20 with gable-ended single storey block under pantile roof. 2 storeys. 5-window front to main block (mid or late C19 work), all C20 wooden casements. Entry to The Old Smithy now through C20 extension. Door to the Penny School right of centre under monopitch roofed hood on curving timber brackets. This hood is apparently a remnant of an original pentice across the front of both cottages which still survives with pantile roof on The Old Smithy. Originally both cottages presented a symmetrical front with roof hipped each end; each had 2 windows and central door. Interior has some original plain carpentry. C20 extension to The Penny School not included.
