SX 39 NE CLAWTON CHURCH ROAD, Clawton

3/15 Nos 1 and 2 - II Pair of cottages. Probably mid C17. Whitewashed cob on stone rubble footings, corrugated iron roof (formerly thatched) gabled at ends, stone end stacks. Single depth plan. Each cottage is 1 1/2-rooms wide with a heated hall/kitchen at the outer end of the range and a half room divided between an unheated service room and a stair in the centre of the range. The left-hand cottage has the service room to the front, the stair to the rear; the arrangement is reversed for the right-hand cottage. Front doors on either side of the central half rooms open directly into the heated rooms. A small lean-to adjoins the right return of the range. 2 storeys. Symmetrical 3-window front with front doors under corrugated iron porch canopies on timber brackets on either side of a 1-light window. Ground floor windows left and right are 2-light casements, 6-panes per light. 4-pane central first floor window; first floor windows left and right 2-light casements with glazing bars and probably originally identical. A 3-light ovolo-moulded C17 timber window on the left return of the range appears to be in situ. Interior Very unaltered since the C19, the right-hand cottage preserves an open fireplace. A rare survival of an ingeniously-planned pair of C17 cottages on a prominent corner site. A similar pair exists in Manaton parish.
