Listing Text

NORTH MOLTON THE SQUARE (south side),
SS 7229-7329
18/200 Red Lion Cottage and Davreen
20.2.67 (formerly listed as Davreen)
GV II
Pair of houses, possibly formerly one. Probably late C16 or early C17, possibly with
C18 or C19 alterations or addition. Remodelled probably in the mid C20. Rendered,
over stone and rear of coursed stone rubble with scantle-slate roof. Gable ended C20
asbestos-slate roof. Tops of stacks rebuilt in C20 brick.
Plan and development: Left-hand house (Red Lion Cottage) has a 2-room plan main
range consisting of hall to right with projecting square bay to front and end stack
to right with winder stair to rear, and smaller unheated room to left. Entrance to
left-hand room, blocked entrance to right of square bay. Probably C18 former dairy
to rear of hall. Right-hand house (Davreen) of one-room plan, with entrance passage
and staircase to left (possible former cross passage) and 2 rooms (divided
longitudinally) to right with integral corner stacks to right-hand end. It is said
to have been gutted by fire at some time necessitating the replacement of all
internal partitions etc.. It is possible that both these houses were formerly one,
and that the right-hand house was the former service end, with hall and inner room to
left now forming the left-hand house. Two storeys.
Exterior: Asymmetrical front. Roughly-central hipped-roofed square bay to left-hand
house, with probably C20 first-floor small-paned 3-light wooden casement and large
ground-floor C20 small-paned wooden casement with deep reveals, chamfered to top (the
old list describes a moulded wooden lintel to this window, probably formerly for a
wooden mullioned window, but was not noted at time of survey - September.1987).
Carved stone woolmark of Thomas Parker above ground-floor window. First-floor
probably late C18 or early C19 sixteen-pane glazing bar sash to right, ground-floor
C20 small-paned window to right (formerly doorway, see recess below) and ground-floor
probably C20 small-paned window to left. C20 boarded door to far left. Right-hand
house has a pair of first-floor C20 small-paned 2-light wooden casements, central
ground-floor C20 small-paned 3-light wooden casement, and C20 half-glazed door to
left. Dairy wing to rear has small side window with wooden lintel and boarded
internal shutters.
Interior: Only ground floor of each house inspected at time of survey. Right-hand
ground-floor room (hall) of Red Lion Cottage has C17 deep-chamfered half beam to
right, above fireplace. C17 open stone fireplace to right with dressed-stone splayed
reveals, C20 chamfered wooden lintel and brick-arched bread oven to right. Cupboard
to left of fireplace with boarded door. Window seat in bay with C17 panelling and
some C19 matchboarding. C17 oak winder staircase in semi-circular well to rear of
fireplace; C19 boarded door at foot. Ground-floor rooms of right-hand house
(Davreen) remodelled in the C20. First-floor rooms and roofspace not inspected.
Thomas Parker was a local wool stapler.
