Thatched Roof Thursday #81 - Shottery Village

Brookside Cottage
(formerly The White Cottage)

This thached cottage has a wonderful little brook
to the rear and is located about 5 minutes by foot from Anne Hathaway's Cottage.

The building dates back to the 17th Century,
albeit there have been additions since giving it a more modern look.
The thatch is described as being a 'hipped thatched roof'.
Grade II listed.  Here are the actual listing details:

Cottage. C17 with later additions, including early C20 wings. 
Timber-frame with some plaster infill and colourwashed brick; 
hipped thatch roof with brick end stacks and stack to rear of
ridge. 2-unit, cross wing, hall house. Single storey and 
attic; catslide outshut to left of 2-window range with gabled 
wing to right return. Entrance to left of centre has plank 
door and side light. Cross-mullioned window to right of centre
extends to eaves; 2 dormer windows of 2 lights; all with 
leaded glazing. Some square framing to centre and right. Wing 
to right return has 2 small lights flanking projecting stack 
with narrow light and capped shaft. Rear has varied 
fenestration, including tall mullioned window; square framing 
with tension brace; wing has timber-framed 1st floor, jettied

PS. Happy Thanksgiving. I do miss this holiday.

It looks quite large and most interesting. Hip roofs are good - we like them in Florida 'cause they're less likely to blow off during a hurricane!

Did you cook a turkey despite being on the other side of the ocean?
