Field Visit (10 June 2015)

NF 78327 46195 Probably 19th century cottage, listed as having a ‘muran thatch roof, overhanging eaves, secured with netting and stone weights’. The cottage has been renovated for use as holiday accomodation but retains a marram thatched roof with continuous marram ridge. The entire roof has been netted, including across the ridge, which is weighted just above the eaves and around the chimney stacks at either end by stones secured in a continuous string by thin rope passed through the holes in the netting. The listing description for the building notes that a ‘shed to north (beside road) [is] also thatched; similar outbuilding to south now derelict’. The shed to the north that is listed as being thatched is no longer there, though web-based satellite imagery that is now out of date confirms its once existence. The listing description should be updated accordingly.
