Field Visit (19 February 2015)

NT 82692 28156 Late 18th century single storey cottage, currently used as a holiday rental, is listed as having a ‘thatched roof with scalloped ridging’, however the ridge is no longer scalloped. It is unclear whether the ridge is thatched in turf or whether this is extensive vegetation growth. The entire thatch, including the ridge, is netted. What appear to be repaired patches are visible directly below the chimney stacks on both the north and south ends on the front (NW) elevation, which have been scobed using hazel. There is also a patch of repair below the south chimney on the rear (SE) elevation, again using spars. The thatch on the front elevation is in good condition, however, on the rear elevation the surface of the thatch appears to be slightly damaged in places.
