Abstract:
A desk based assessment was undertaken to determine the history of the property, which appears to have originated in the 18th C as a two bay cottage. The Hill family (mostly agricultural labourers) occupied the house as tenants for most of the 19th C and were first documented at the Knapp in the 1820s. They subsequently purchased the property and were still in occupation into the 1980s . By the mid 19th C the house seems to have been of three bays, having been extended to the east. A small ground-floor extension at the NW corner of the house possibly occurred prior to the end of the 19th C (the fabric has not been examined), and there also appears to have been another small 19th C extension or outbuilding against the eastern end of the northern wall prior to the early 20th C.The size and position of the cottage appears to have remained fairly constant throughout the 19th Century, and no substantial changes appear to have occurred until the mid-late 20th Century. The 1911 census records that the building then had a total of six rooms. The original layout of the main part of the house survived relatively intact until the 1950s, with a three-bay arrangement, the stairs and entrance doors being in the central bay. The western bay appears to have been the original living kitchen as it has the original chimney base. At first floor level there were three bedrooms, one being a through room.The building was altered circa 1955, with construction of a small single storey kitchen extension ,and the present tiled roof with dormers appears to date to this period, the dormers being flat roofed until 1987.
