Former Clifton Farmhouse and Clifton Cottage

(Formerly listed as Malt Shovel Public House, HARGROVE AVENUE (North side))

Previously listed as Clifton Farmhouse and Clifton Cottage, HARGROVE AVENUE)



Former farmhouse and cottage, later public house and hostel, reverted back to domestic use in the early-C21. C17, in 2 builds, with large C19 addition; altered. Sandstone random rubble with large quoins, stone slate roof (Welsh slate roof to the addition).
PLAN: the C17 portion is L-plan formed by an east-west range with a projecting wing at the west end and a small gabled extension in the angle and flush with the wing; the C19 additions are a parallel range attached to the rear and a cross-wing at the east end.
EXTERIOR: the C17 portion, 2 low storeys and 1:1:2 windows, with coupled unequal gables to the left, has a doorway in the centre of the gabled portion with a simple slab cornice, flanked by 2 altered rectangular windows on each floor. The set-back range to the right has an altered or inserted doorway at the right-hand end, 4 small C20 windows at ground floor and 2 altered windows above. Small chimney on right-hand slope of right-hand gable. The left return wall of the wing has a plain doorway at ground floor and 2 altered or inserted windows above. The C19 additions are 2 higher storeys, in simplified Jacobean style, with a 3-window east front which has a C20 lean-to porch in the centre and vertical-rectangular windows with raised surrounds and hood-moulds (sashed without glazing bars at ground floor and top-hung casements above); a rendered south gable with one similar window on each floor (lacking hood-moulds), and a north facade similar to the east front.
INTERIOR: the east wing has 3 massive king-post roof trusses with raked struts, suggesting that it was formerly part of a larger building of higher status.
