HEMINGSTONE BULLS ROAD TM 15 SW 6/114 Willow Cottage

- II

House; C16 in 2 stages. 2 storeys, 3-cell plan with cross-passage entrance. Timber-framed and plastered. Pantiled roofs, once thatched. C16 or early C17 axial chimney of red brick. C20 casements. C20 entrance porch, gabled and pantiled, with framed and boarded door; another C20 glazed door at cross- passage position. A rare example of a C16 house with a rear aisle, which in this instance is an alteration. The narrow original house contained a smoke- bay, a fragment of whose coupled-rafter roof remains. In later C16 the lower rear wall was removed and the aisle added to the hall and service cells. The upper floor was rebuilt. A parlour block was added, with close-studding, diamond mullioned window evidence and a coupled-rafter roof. A large lintelled fireplace built in C16 within the old smoke-bay has a lintel from a timber-framed chimney of intermediate date. Evidence for arched cross-entry doorways of both phases.

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.
