Cottage, (formerly
listed as Smithy


Smithy and Smithy Cottage. c1865. By William Nesfield. Red English
garden wall bond brick with clapboarding and a plain tile roof. Two
storeys. Road front: jettied first floor supported on three deep
brackets of projecting brickwork at the far right and left and to the
right of the door. Two bays, that at left containing a single light
window at left and the door at right which has strap hinges of wrought
iron. The two brackets of projecting brickwork which form the porch
to the door each have an ashlar piece in the shape of a kneeler as
their last course and flush with the first floor. These are decorated
with 'pies' of the type seen in such profusion at Kinmel Park
Denbighshire. The coving to the first floor jetty is of cement and
has five panels of pargetted work, each in the pattern of a sunflower,
set with the bottoms of green glass bottles (first seen at the
Regents' Park Lodge of the year before). The first floor walling is
now masked by C20 clapboarding. Four light casement window to the
right and a 2-light window to the left. The roof is ½-hipped and has
a metal rod supporting a penant at the angle cut with the letter C
(Crewe). To the left and recessed is the single storey smithy now
converted to garaging, which has two windows of three lights with
moulded brick mullions at right and a C20 garage door to the left.
The left hand reveal of the house has a 2-light ground floor window to
the left and a pointed arched ground floor window to the right set
with panes of bulls eye glass. To the first floor is a hipped dormer
window of two casement lights. The rear of the smithy has a small
stable adjoining it.
