HER Number:MDV37362
Name:HOUSE in the Parish of Bovey Tracey

Summary

Nos 20 (manor cottage), 22 (cottage retreat) and 24 east street (north side). Row of 3 houses, probably a single large house originally. Early c16, with later additions at the rear. Solid, rendered walls. Slated roofs. The front ranges of nos 22 and 24 have blue glazed ridge-tiles, but no 20 has clay ridge-tiles some of which appear to be old handmade ones with low crests. The rear wing of no 22 has some similar ridge-tiles. On the ridge, between nos 22 and 24, is a c19 red brick chimney stack. Nos 20 and 22 have a 3 room medieval plan, the former open hall and one of the 2 storeyed ends lying within no 20, while the other storeyed end lists within no 22. The relationship of no 24, which is also pre-1700 and shares a roof with the other 2 houses, is not at present clear, although it is likely to have been part of the same house originally. The building may formerly have extended further west, on to the site now occupied by no 18. Two storeys. Four window front. None of the ground floor partitions at no 20 are original. The front range has been remodelled to provide a 2 room and through passage plan different in dimension from the medieval plan as reconstructed from the arrangement of the upper floor beams. Medieval roof survives over whole of front range of no 20 and appears to continue at least over no 22. Evidence of smoke-blackening. Roof structural features. See doe list for full details (doe).
