4/202 The Albion
House. Circa late C18/early C19 and extended in the early-mid C19. Mostly slate-
hung walls. Scantle slate roofs, half-hipped to middle original part with tall brick
chimneys over original side walls, otherwise hipped with brick chimneys over side
walls, left and right, over cross wall of rear left wing and 2 chimneys removed C20
from returned end of wing but large external breast survives. Some cast-iron ogee
Plan originally of living room, left, and slightly smaller parlour, right, flanking
cross passage leading to central stair between 2 narrower rear service rooms.
Extended in the early-mid C19 at either side by wings, the 2-storey one to the left
consisting of a range of service rooms projecting to rear and returning at the end to
the right to partly enclose rear courtyard; the wing to the right as tall single-
storey drawing room linked to original parlour and as deep as the original house.
Later lean-to at rear of this and single-storey buildings ranged around rear
courtyard including one opposite rear of original house with wide doorway or porte
2 storeys. Nearly symmetrical 1:3:1 window south front consisting of 3-window front
of original house to middle flanked by originally identical taller single-storey
fronts of hip ended wings. House has doorway, and original hornless 12-pane sash
over, slightly off-centre to right. Original 6-panel door with flush beaded bottom
panels and doorcase with pilasters, moulded architrave, dentilled frieze and panelled
reveals and soffit. Flanking ground and first floor windows are 16-pane hornless
sashes. Wings to left and right have original tall central hornless sashes with very
thin glazing bars and narrower panes to sides and middle. Left-hand wing, originally
intended to be seen as a single-storey front to maintain symmetry has upper floor
partly behind upper sash and has had wide 3-light casement inserted over. Several
original hornless sashes survive to other elevations. West front with stuccoed
ground floor, left, and slatehanging over studwork, over, has large slate-hung
outshut projection right of middle, possibly originally for service stair, but now
with C20 window to ground floor and older C20 tripartite horned dormered sash over.
Interior not inspected.
A house with an interesting C19 plan development retaining intact the original house,
and notable also for the survival of so many scantle slate roofs, the extensive and
attractive use of slatehanging, and the large number of original sashes.
