WHIMPLE SY 0497-0597 10/241 Nos 1, 2 and 3 Hazel Cottages - GV II

3 cottages, formerly 5. Probably late C18 - early C19, renovated circa 1980. Plastered cob on stone rubble footings; stone rubble and brick stacks topped with C19 and C20 brick; thatch roof, slate roof to No 1. Plan: 3 cottages. The main block faces north. It is built along the street down a gentle hillslope. It contains Nos 2 and 3; No 2 to left (east) has a 3-room plan with a gable-end stack and axial stack between centre and right rooms, and No 3 to right which has a 2-room plan with an axial stack backing onto the adjoining cottage. These 2 cottages were made by rearranging 3 former cottages and the 1969 O.S. map shows 4 cottages here. No 1 is a 2-room plan cottage set at right angles to rear of (and overlapping) the left (west) end of the main block. It has an outer lateral stack. In fact there is an access passage through the front end of No 1 giving access from the road to the rear of the main block. The first floor room oversails this passage to adjoin the main block. All 3 cottages are 2 storeys and at the right end of the main block is a circa 1980 lean-to extension. Exterior: the main front has an irregular disposition of C20 casements with glazing bars, 5 to the ground floor and 3 to the first floor. There are 3 front doorways, each with stone steps down to the street and all now blocked by C20 casements. All 3 are now disused. The entrance to No 3 is in the C20 extension on the end and the entrance to No 2 is round the back. The main roof is gable-ended. The front end of No 1 contains a wide doorway to the passage. It contains an old solid doorframe with an old plank door. No 1 contains C20 windows and doors and is gable- ended. Interiors: are largely the result of C20 modernisations. Nos 1 and 2 and 3 Hazel Cottages forms part of a group of small thatch-roofed cottages.
