SJ 6372 3940 Nos. 7 and 8


Pair of estate cottages. Circa 1903, probably by Ernest Newton.
Red brick with tile-hung attic and pebbledashed porches with tile-hung
gables. Plain tile roof, hipped over rear wings. U-plan. One storey
and attic. South-east (garden) front: central brick ridge stack and
brick ridge stacks at junctions of porches and cross wings, each of
square section with 2 triagular-section projections on each face. Plain
barge boards, pegged over purlin ends. Pair of gabled wings with recessed
ground floor (not in line with gables) between, and flush attic with
central raking semi dormer. 4-window front; 5-light leaded wooden
casements (paired 4-light to dormer), those to ground floor with gauged-
brick heads. Left-and right-hand return fronts: ground-floor 3-and5-
light leaded wooden casements. Central 2-storey porch with open ground-
floor consisting of 2 square oak posts supporting corner brackets and
moulded bressumer; first-floor 4-light leaded wooden casement. Stone
step up to boarded door with small window to-one side. Rear: wings
with 5-light leaded wooden attic casements and catslide roofs each side
of hip descending over set-back outshuts. One storey brick service
block projecting between rear wings with hipped roof and catslide over
outshut at end. Roofed passageways between wings and outbuilding leading
to half-glazed back doors. Interiors not inspected. These cottages
have been attributed (Saint) to Richard Norman Shaw who carried out
work at Shavington Hall (demolished 1959) in 1885-6. Stylistically,
however, they appear more likely to be the work of Ernest Newton who
worked at Shavington in 1903. Andrew Saint, Richard Norman Shaw, pp.241-
3 and p.430.
