5/156 The Cottage attached to
the east of Inchfield House
27.5.77 (Formerly listed as
Inchfield House under
Peel Cottage Road, Walsden)

Cruck framed house mid C16 in coursed rubble now forming garage and store room.
1½ storeys. Attached to left-hand end is 2-storey added cell early C18 in thin
coursed stone with ashlar quoins. Attached is mid C19 7-bay 2-storey house in
watershot masonry of no interest. All have stone slate roofs. The 1½ storey
house is of 4 bays and has older walling to the ground floor with C19 stonework
replacing 1st floor timber framing. One post survives above the inserted garage
door in 4th bay. 1st 2 bays have openings for sash windows. The 3rd bay has
door entry with timber lintel and jambs over which is carried a deeper beam set
in the wall with a projecting slate hood over. Above this is a small window
just below the eaves. This doorway opens against a chimney with well-dressed
stack to ridge probably mid C17. Apex to gable has crocketed finial of unusual
pattern. Right hand return wall has sash window in gable with plain stone
surround. Rear has quoins and 3 timber posts pegged to wall plate with, as at
front, rubble stone to ground floor and thin coursed stone to 1st floor. One
2-light double chamfered mullioned window with slate hood survives to right end
with a 2-light chamfered window. Under eaves is long horizontal sliding sash
window and one other sash in 2nd bay. Large stylobats are also visible in the
wall for the 2 central trusses. The attached cottage rises ½ a storey higher
and has double chamfered mullioned window of 3 lights (one mullion removed),
modern glazing. C19 doorway has stubby open porch in punch-dressed stone.
Interior preserves 4 pairs of crucks forming 3 bays. They stand on stylobats
and have collars and stop chamfered tie beams (some cut through). A very rare
and important survival in this region.
