Court Barton Cottage and attached
wall and railings
(Formerly Listed as:
Court Barton Cottage)


House. C17, eaves raised and altered in C19. Limestone rubble
with slate roof, brick stacks to left-of-centre and right
gable end. L-shape plan; 2-unit, with C19 rear wing to the
2 storeys; 2-window range. First floor has two c1980
three-light casement windows across the eaves level. A similar
window under a concrete lintel is below that to the right, and
a hollow-moulded, mullioned 4-light window to the left of the
C20 door, which has a flat stone porch on brackets.
INTERIOR: altered except for an open fireplace with a large
Moolham stone lintel backing onto central passage and axial
beams with run-out chamfers to both rooms. C17 roof truss
beneath the new roof has blackening to the inner faces.
Evidence for a timber-framed partition to the left, and thus
that the C17 house continued for another bay to the left.
SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: A late C19 brick retaining wall curved to
the right, is attached to the south-west corner at
ground-level. Widely-spaced railings on Ham Hill stone
capping, flank a central gate of long/short railings; all have
cast-iron spearhead tops.
