5/131 Outbuilding about 10 metres north
- of Bickham House and walls to
Outbuilding, said to have been used as laundry and cottages. Probably an early C19
remodelling of an earlier building. Colourwashed rendered red sandstone; slate roof,
gabled at ends, right end stack.
Plan: Rectangular on plan, at right angles to the service end of Bickham House
(q.v.). A cross passage through the centre of the building gives access to the very
large walled garden to the north. The building appears to have been used as 2
cottages in the early C19, on of them possibly the gardener's cottage ; an C18 window
in the right gable end is not necessarily in situ.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical front with a rounded corner at the left end with 2
first floor windows and a loading door, 3 ground floor doors and 3 windows. The
right hand doorway leads into a passage with access to the walled garden behind. The
windows are early C19 16-pane sashes. The gable end of the right return has a small
C18 casement window with square leaded panes. Loft doorway on left return. Tall
rendered walls to walled garden behind outbuilding included in the listing.
Interior: The right hand end retains a small early C19 chimney-piece group value
with Bickham House and Bickham Farmhouse.
