II



Cottage. C18 with C19 and C20 alterations.

MATERIALS: Plastered cob on a rubble stone plinth. Rubble stone stack with late C20 brick above roof level. Slate roof replaces thatch.

PLAN: Two storey, two room plan cottage with heated room to south-west end. C19 lean-to to the north-east end. C20 conservatory to principal elevation.

EXTERIOR: Central C19 plank door with six light casement windows to either side and to first floor. No openings to rear exposed cob wall. Single storey lean-to to north-west end. C20 conservatory to front elevation with slate roof, linking Brandirons Corner Cottage to a mid-C19 house (not of interest).

INTERIOR: Entrance leads directly into the principal heated room. The fireplace has a bread oven and C19 over mantle. Room to the right of entrance includes the renewed timber winder staircase. The roof has renewed rafters but retains its principal trusses and purlins. Internal doors are C19 plank doors.

REASONS FOR DESIGNATION DECISION Brandirons Corner Cottage is listed at Grade II for the following principal reasons: * A good example of a vernacular cottage constructed of cob with a rubble stone plinth and stack * The legibility of the original two room plan * It retains the principal trusses and purlins of its historic roof structure
