Listing Text

4/103 The Old Forge
House, originally formed larger house with adjoining property, then divided off and
had forge added at one end. Forge has since been converted into accommodation.
Original part late C16/early C17 forge added possibly in C18, modernised in late
C20. Rendered cob walls to original house part, former forge is rendered sandstone.
Gable ended asbestos slate roof, on lower level over forge. 2 rear lateral stack
with brick shafts, right-hand one (to original house part) is a large rendered stone
The original (left-hand) part to this house initially formed the inner room to the
adjoining property. Due to modernisation it is difficult to assess when the forge
was added but it was possibly in the C18 and it is likely that the property was
divided from the adjoining one at this stage. Forge apparently converted in later
C20. At present 2 principal heated rooms on ground floor with outshut at front of
right-hand room.
2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4 window front, 2 windows on ground floor. C20 2-light
casements with glazing bars on first, floor to far right is single light. Ground
floor windows are 3-light to left end, 4-lights to right, similar to the others.
C20 plank and glazed door to their left. Outshut built onto front of forge to the
Interior inaccessible at time of survey but believed to have been extensively
modernised in C20.
