(Bowling Dyeworks Almshouses)
SE 13 SE 9/885
First built at the top of Springwell Street in 1857 by Mr and Mrs Edward Ripley,
the family who founded one of the largest dyeworks in Europe, the almshouses were
moved to their present site in 1881, four new ones being added at the same time.
A symmetrical range of 2 storey almshouses in a restrained Jacobean style. Fine
quality dressed sandstone "brick". The end houses break forward slightly, gabled with
weathered saddlestones and kneelers. Intervening houses have single window fronts
grouped in pairs, the first floor windows treated as gabled semi-dormers. Small
corbel table to eaves. Weathered first floor sill course. Slate roofs, prominent,
corniced, chimney stacks. Windows throughout are 2 light thin chamfered mullion
casements. Drip moulds over first floor windows of end houses. Paired doorways,
except for end houses, 4-centred arches with drip moulds raised over oak leaf carved
panels. Original date stones reset following re-erection.
