- Turnpike Cottage
Detached cottage. Circa 1814, possibly by John Rennie, the engineer of the Grand
Western Canal. Random rubble sandstone with gabled end pantiled roof. End stacks
with stubby brick shafts emerge from heavily coped end gables. 2-room central
entrance plan with service rooms in rear integral outshut. 2-storeys.
Front: symmmetrical 3-window range; moulded stone cornice and rusticated quoins.
Round-headed windows to both floors, with rusticated architraves; 6-panes per
casement and semi-circular light above, similar windows below but 3-panes per
casement. String course drops and takes in sills of first floor windows; open
timber porch with slate roofs and crested ridge tiles looks later. Cornice
continues as string course to foot of end elevation gable walls, which each contain
one 2-light round headed window, apex blocked. Rear lean-to outshut with prominent
plastered stack to roadside. Turnpike Cottage contributes to a group that includes
Rock House and its rear outbuildings.
