MEM22194 - Green Dolphin Cottage, High Street, Porlock (Building)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (1)
On the south side of High Street, nearer to Doverhay, is a two-storey cottage, probably 17th century, with front lateral stack and slated shoulders and squeezed among much later frontages. The lowered dormers, now gabled, indicate a former thatched roof. Another cottage of similar date and frontage is close to the junction with Lowerbourne and has a front lean-to 19th century extension including shop front with narrow glazing bars.  Green Dolphin Cottage retains something close to its original 17th Century elevation, with a front lateral stack and lowered gable dormers indicating that the currently double Roman tiled roof would have formerly been thatched.  This structure appears to be present on the 1841 Luccombe Tithe map.
