CHULMLEIGH CHULMLEIGH SS 6814-6914 7/34 Glebe Cottage 20.2.67 GV II 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 dwelling. 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.

Images of England

Images of England was a photographic record of every listed building in England, created as a snap shot of listed buildings at the turn of the millennium. These photographs of the exterior of listed buildings were taken by volunteers between 1999 and 2008. The project was supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
