Listing Text


SV81SE The Forge


House, now outbuilding. C18. Roughly coursed granite rubble
with gabled pantile roof and granite end stacks. Originally of
2-unit plan. One storey; 2-window range.Granite lintels over
central doorway and flanking windows; rear has granite lintel
over window to right of centre. Interior: open fireplace with
timber lintel. The house seems to have been divided into 2
rooms, and the off-centre position of the rear window
indicates that it did not have the central-staircase plan
which was the dominant type in the C19. A rare surviving
example of a single-storey dwelling, a type once prevalent on
the islands before the C19 brought higher standards of living.
