Full description

In the High Street there is a very good range of cob and thatch. As well as plain vernacular the frontage continues through to classical detailing but is done so in a manner that is perfectly in scale and proportion to the overall profile. Other details: Maps.

Cottage. Probably 17th century origins, much rebuilt in the early 19th century. Plastered cob on stone rubble footings; stone rubble or cob footings topped with 20th century brick; thatch roof. Two-room plan cottage with central entrance lobby and staircase plan facing onto the High Street to west. The larger left room has a-rear lateral stack. Two storeys. 2-window front of late 19 - early 20th century casements with glazing bars; 3 lights to left, 2 lights to right. 20th century part-glazed door between them and slightly right of centre. On the right end high in the wall are a few surviving stucco quoins. The roof runs continuously with that of Philomel Cottage to left and butts the gable of The Old Bakery to right.
Interior. The ground floor partitions and ceiling joists are 19th century and the fireplace is blocked by a 20th century grate. Roof not accessible and trusses are boxed into the partitions. Nevertheless earlier features may be suspected here since it appears to be one of a pair of cottages with adjoining Philomel Cottage and that contains early 17th century features. The two were probably made by dividing the 17th century house in the early 19th century. 34 High Street is one of a group of attractive and varied buildings, many of them listed, on the High Street as it rises to the Church of All Saints.
