EAST ANSTEY WADDICOMBE SS 82 NE 2/13 Henspark Cottage - - II Cottage, at one time in two occupations. Probably mid to late C17, with C19 and C20 alterations. Painted rendered stone rubble and some cob. Bitumenized slate roof with gable ends. Axial stone rubble stack and rendered stone rubble stack at right end. Plan: C20 alterations have obscured the original plans, and it is unclear whether the cottage was occupied for from outset as a single tenement. There are four rooms in line, with direct entry into the room at the left end which is unheated and into the third room from the left which comprises a wide entrance hall containing a C20 staircase. There are straight joints between the two left end rooms, suggesting the axial stack was formerly at the left gable end, and between the centre rooms. The roof structure has been replaced to the left of the straight joint, a late C17 roof structure surviving over the right-hand section. It seems likely therefore that the original core consists of the second room from the left, which has chamfered beam and bressumers, the right-hand section apparently being rebuilt in the late C17 as a separate cottage, the left-hand cottage being also extended at roughly the same time by the addition of the extension of one room plan at the left end. Exterior: 2 storeys. 4-window range. Principally late C19 fenestration 3-light casements, 2 and 3 panes per light. C20 door to left, early C20 door to right. Interior: Roughly chamfered axial beam to left end room. Principal room has hollow step stop chamfered cross ceiling beam and bressumers. Chamfered lintel to fireplace which has brick-lined bread oven. Room at right end has single chamfered cross ceiling beam with hollow step stops. Two C17 trusses with straight prinicipals and pegged halved collars survive over right-hand section, otherwise C20 roof structure.
