Details

SX 86 NE ABBOTSKERSWELL MAIN STREET Abbotskerwell 3/12 Rock Cottage - II Small house. Probably C16, extended in C18 and C19, altered in C20. Rendered rubble/cob walls. Hipped thatched roof. 2 rendered rubble stacks, one projecting lateral stack at the front, one axial to the right. The building may originally have been open to the roof with central hearth then ceiled in C17 with front lateral stack added to hall/kitchen to left. 1 room probaably C18 extension at left-hand end and C19 one room extension added at right end. 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3 window front of circa early C20 2 and 3 light casements with diamond 'leaded' panes. C19 slate roofed open fronted lean-to porch at centre to right of lateral stack with C19 plank door behind. Interior: One side-pegged jointed cruck survives over the hall. There is no access to the roof space over the hall, but original hip timbers remain at the left-hand end within the extension and appear to be darkened, so the roof may be smoke- blackened. Hall fireplace has chamfered wooden lintel with hollow step stops; oven in left-hand side. Half beam at passage end of hall, cut off at rear, has ogee stop. Central cross beam in hall, chamfered, has hollow step stops. Above the hall fireplace are 3 small plaster plaques the central one is a lions head, the outer 2 are grotesque faces - they may be C17. This is a quite unusual example of a 2 room probably late medieval house which still preserves a number of interior features and a relatively traditional exterior.
