(Formerly Listed as:

Cottages & 2 Houses)

II

Includes: Heasandford Lodge QUEEN VICTORIA ROAD.
Includes: Heasandford Cottage QUEEN VICTORIA ROAD.
Manor house of the de Stansfield family, now 5 dwellings.
Probably early C16 but much altered, with additions. Mostly
sandstone random rubble (part rendered and painted white),
with stone slate roofs except in the centre which is Welsh
slate.
PLAN: irregular U-plan formed by a hall-range on an east-west
axis, with a rear outshut, a long projecting west wing and a
short east wing, plus an addition to the east side of the
latter.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys with cellar and attic, with a 3-window
main range. This, remodelled in the early C18 and now rendered
and painted white, has a central doorway in a moulded
architrave with a keystone and floating pediment, and a
painted coat of arms above (arms of the Haydock family); 2
tall cross-windows at ground floor, with ovolo-moulded
surrounds, slender hood-moulds and C20 joinery replacing the
former mullions and transoms (parts of which have been found
in the garden); and 3 similar but shorter windows at 1st
floor, with linked hood-moulds. At its east gable end (now
mostly covered by the addition) is a large extruded chimney
stack.
The west wing, of very irregular random rubble (very large at
ground-floor level), and of 2 structural bays, has a long
re-entrant wall with few openings: a Tudor-arched doorway
offset right of centre, with a chamfered surround and studded
board door (no longer in use), above this a former 3-light
mullioned window mostly blocked and reduced to one light, and
one small inserted window on each floor to the right; its
3-window south gable wall has c1900 bay windows at ground
floor, altered windows at 1st floor, a 3-light attic window,
an oculus above this and the stump of a finial; and the west
return wall has C19 and C20 openings.
The east wing, rendered and painted white like the centre but
with exposed quoins, is asymmetrical, with eaves lower to left

than right, and has a doorway to the left, a tall cross-window
casement at ground floor, a 4-light double-chamfered mullioned
window at 1st floor with round-headed lights and hollow
spandrels, a blocked round-headed light to the attic, with a
thin hood-mould, and gable copings with kneelers.
At the rear, the centre and western bays of the main range
have outshuts in 2 builds: that to the west has quoins to both
corners, a doorway to the left, a 7-light double-chamfered
mullioned window at ground floor and a 4-light flush-mullioned
window above; that to the centre has a cross-window stairlight
to the right, with jambs like those of the cross-windows at
the front and ovolo-and-fillet mullion and transom; a 3-light
flush-mullion window low to the left, and a recessed 2-light
casement above this, with moulded jambs.
The addition to the east of the east wing (formerly a
farmhouse, now Heasandford Cottage), mostly of rubble with
quoins, has 3 gables facing east, and various altered C19
openings.
INTERIOR: east wing has very thick partition wall, and a fine
chamber fireplace at 1st floor with a moulded rectangular
surround; unusual arch-braced roof trusses of early C16 type,
suggesting formerly open hall, or re-use (see Pearson).
