CHITTLEHAMPTON HILL HEAD, Chittlehampton SS 62 NW

1/151 Cottage at Top of Hill Head, - adjoining Tower View

- II Cottage. Probably C17 origins but entirely remodelled in late C19. Rendered stone rubble and cob. Thatch roof with plain ridge and stone rubble stacks with brick shafts at each gable end. Concrete tile roof to porch and rear outshut. Plan: 2 room and central through-passage plan, with parlour to left, former kitchen to right with staircase to rear right-hand corner of parlour, with access from the passage and running from back to front. Small late C19 kitchen and scullery outshut added at rear. The original C17 plan has been obscured by later alterations, the apparently C17 roof structure being confined over the through-passage and right-hand room. It is possible therefore that the left-hand room is an entirely new addition of the late C19, and it is known that a separate cottage originally adjoined the right-hand end, possibly forming a pair. 2 storeys. 3 window range. C20 fenestration, 2-light casement, 2 panes per light except ground floor left-hand window which is 3 lights, 3 panes per light. All window openings have brick quoins and slightly cambered lintels. Leanto porch with concrete-tiled roof and C20 inner door. Interior: C19 joinery principally intact. Left-hand room fireplace rebuilt in C20, that to right-hand room has chamfered timber lintel, probably reused, and blocked bread oven. Roof structure: entirely C19 over left end, and superimposed over C17 structure to right end with 2 trusses, 1 replaced in C20 of flat pitch with trenched purlins. The timbers and underside of thatch do appear blackened, but this may be due to natural causes rather than through exposure to an open hearth.
