Field Visit (19 February 2015)

NT 82001 28056 Mid to late 18th century single storey with attic cottage, located in a village with a number of other thatched cottages. The entrance doorway has a reed-thatched gabled canopy above it, scobed with hazel spars and partially netted. The thatch forms dormer hoods to the three upper storey windows on the west (front) elevation. The ridge, which is netted and scobed with hazel spars, has a substantial amount of mossy vegetation growth present and the scobing has come away from the ridge in some places. The ridge is continued below both the north and south chimney stacks at a lower level, however, the scobing is in better condition and more defined below the northern stack. Only the ridge and entrance canopy are netted. The thatch has a small amount of mossy vegetation growth throughout. On the rear elevation, the roof and ridge are both thatched in the same manner as on the front.
