21-MAY-01 1 AND 2


Pair of cottages, formerly workers housing. 1920. Fred Rowntree for the Quaker Trust. Brick walls, tile roofs, wood windows.
PLAN: Range of 2 attached cottages with entrances to long elevation.
FACADE: Pitched roof with small first floor windows and projecting gable to each cottage. Main door and larger window to ground floor of each gabled bay. Prominent chimneys to right-hand-side of each cottage. Wood flush-framed multi-paned sashes and casements.
INTERIOR: Interior not inspected but thought to be plain as originally workers cottages.
SUBSIDIARY: Directly addresses the 1919 Village Green at the core of the village of Jordans.
HISTORY: Construction of the village of Jordans, an ideal planned community for Quakers, began in 1919 to Fred Rowntree's designs of 1916. This terrace forms a group with the other surviving terraces around the Village Green, those first built at Jordans and intended for workers at Jordans Village Industries.
This terrace is listed for its contribution to the group value of the historically significant Jordans village and as a range of mostly unaltered and well-designed workers housing.
SOURCES: Buildings of England, Buckinghamshire.
