Details

SY 28 NW BRANSCOMBE 8/15 Nos. 1 and 2 Sellers - Wood Cottages - II 2 cottages. Late C18-early C19, maybe earlier origins, modernised circa 1985. Exposed local stone rubble; stone rubble stacks topped with C19 and C20; thatch roof. Plan: pair of cottages built across the hillslope facing west. No. 1 is at the left (north) end. It has a 3-room plan. The left (north) end room is a C20 extension. The centre room has an axial (former end) stack backing onto the extension. The right room has an axial stack backing onto the centre room. No. 2, at the right (south) end has a 2-room plan. Here the left room has a rear lateral stack and the right room has a gable-end stack. Originally they were a pair of 2- room plan cottages each with a larger inner room and smaller outer room. Both are 2 storeys. Exterior: irregular front fenestration with 7 ground-floor windows and 5 first floor windows. All are C20 casements with glazing bars. Both doorways are C20. That to No. 1 is in the C20 extension and that to No. 2 is at the left end of that cottage. Nevertheless the original arrangement was more regular. Discounting the 1-window section of that C20 extension to No. 1, each cottage originally had a symmetrical 2-window section around a central doorway. Both original doorways are now blocked by windows. The main roof is gable-ended and the extension is half- hipped. Interior has plain carpentry detail where exposed. The fireplaces are stone rubble with plain chamfered lintels. No ceiling beams show. Roof of A-frame trusses of slender A-frame trusses with nailed lap-jointed collars.
