2/12 The Old Post Office and - The Post Box

GV II

Pair of cottages. Probably a single farmhouse originally. Late C16 or C17 with the rear wing of The Old Post Office perhaps a later addition; C20 addition behind The Post Box. Main range is of lightly rendered stone with no straight joint in the front wall between the cottages. Slated and thatched roof. Probably of 3-room and through-passage plan originally, the left-hand end (containing passage and lower room) now called The Old Post Office, the right-hand end (containing hall and inner room or parlour) now called The Post Box. 2 storeys, but with noticeably higher eaves-level at The Post Box; rear projections single-storeyed. Old Post Office has slated roof, flipped at left-hand end, to main range, and corrugated-iron roof to rear wing. Doorway to right of front wall with late C19 or early C20 lean- to porch. To left of doorway a projecting stone stack with set-offs and tapered top, a later brick shaft built on to one side of it. Irregular fenestration, consisting of C20 wood casements. 2 ground-storey windows to left of stack, 1 second-storey window above doorway and another at far left-hand end. A panel of slate-hanging above window left of stack. Small brick stack rising from left-hand gable-well. Few internal features; ground-storey room has very roughly chamfered ceiling-beams and main fireplace with segmental brick arch of headers. Roof mostly reconstructed; surviving principal rafter has threaded purlin and halved collar with shaped end. Post Box has thatched roof with chimney-stack in each gable. To left, heavy stone stack (backing on to through-passage internally) with added shaft on top; to right, brick stack of C19 or later. Front two windows wide. Ground- storey windows enlarged C20, but with small-paned glazing. Wood casements to second-storey windows, C20 to left, C19 to right. At left-hand of ground storey, a rectangular projection, probably an oven. Internally, the former hall has chamfered ceiling-beams and the fireplace a chamfered wood lintel with straight-cut stops. Roof not inspected; trusses have plain feet, now cased.
