7/34 Glebe Cottage
Cottage. Late C17 or early C18 with subsequent C19 and C20 alterations. Painted
rendered stone rubble and cob. Half-hipped thatch roof. Brick stack set back from
the ridge towards right end.
Plan: The cottage backs onto the street. T-shaped on plan. 2 heated rooms to
right of through-passage, with former dairy to left and former stables now converted
to form part of dwelling beyond the dairy at left end; the base of the T-shape is
formed by a small service wing at right angles to the central heated room.
Development. Complex development partly obscured by later alterations. The early
core appears to consist of the 2 heated rooms, which share the principal stack; the
right-hand room fireplace, however appears to be a later insertion across the rear
angle of the room, and the front wall at this end has also been rebuilt in the C20.
There is a lobby entrance onto the stable, although it is not clear whether this is a
later modification. The right-hand room may have originally been an unheated service
room to the larger kitchen/hall, later being converted to a parlour when the cottage
was extended at the left end. The hall/kitchen contains a C19 newel staircase in the
rear left-hand corner. The front service wing appears to be a C18 addition, unheated
until C20. Solid wall and change in roof structure at the left end of the
hall/kitchen indicates the through-passage and former dairy are an addition, probably
also late C18, while in the early C19 the cottage was again extended to the left by
the addition of a lofted stable block, converted in late C20 to form part of the
Exterior: 2 storeys. 6 window range in all. C20 diamond lead glazing pattern
through but some of the casements to the front wing and to the right-hand side of the
main range retain their C19 timber casements. Gabled brick porch with plank door to
lobby entry. Lean-to porch to left side of front wing gives access to through-
passage. Plank door to right side of front wing.
Interior: much altered in C19 and C20. Room at right end has single cross ceiling
beam, unchamfered. Cambered brick arch to fireplace. Former hall/kitchen has
rounded back to fireplace which has bread oven and re-used timber fireplace lintel.
Recess in cob wall with bench seat next to fireplace. Creamery niche in end wall. 2
unchamfered cross ceiling beams.
Roof: has rough C18/C19 trusses with pegged straight principals and waney rafters
and purlins resting on backs. No sign of smoke-blackening.
