Small house. Circa late C17/early C18. Framed construction on a Kent
ragstone plinth, the ground floor framing with brick infill exposed at both
ends, the front elevation tile-hung; peg-tile roof; brick stacks.
Plan and Development: A south-facing house, 2 rooms wide with a probably
later rear outshut. The principal room, a kitchen/parlour, at the right
(east) end, is heated from a projecting end stack with a small unheated
service room- to the left (west) with a straight flight stair between. The
present entrance is directly into the heated room with a second door on the
left (west) end. It is not clear whether the outshut is integral or
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3-window front with a C20 front doorway
and door, slightly to right of centre. 1-, 2- and 3-light C20 timber casement
windows. The right end stack is massive with set-offs, a C20 axial stack has
b-en inserted to left of centre. The side walls of the outshut are brick.
Roof, half-hipped at left end, gabled at right end.
Interior: The right hand room has a chamfered stopped crossbeam and exposed
joists. The fireplace has been blocked but the oak chamfered lintel survives
intact. The service room has exposed joists.
Roof: Not inspected but early carpentry said to survive.
The house is said to have been named after an iron railway bridge nearby. It
may have been a keeper's cottage on the Nizels estate.
A small traditional house with interior features of interest.
