14/178 The Old Laundry


House. Circa 1700 with late C20 alterations. Framed construction, the front
elevation roughcast; peg-tile roof; brick stack.

Plan: West facing. Single depth main block 2-rooms wide with a larger,
heated room to the right, rear outshut. Single-storey addition at right end.
In the 1920s and 30s the building was used as a laundry and the front single-
storey addition was used as the ironing room (information from the owner).

Exterior: 2 storeys and attic. Symmetrical 3-bay front to the main block
with a deep mansard roof. Disused C19 front door in the centre, flanked by
C19 3-light small-pane casements, 2 similar first floor windows. The 2 left
hand windows each have top-hung panes, presumably to ventilate the laundry.
Flat-roofed attic dormer with a small-pane C19 casement. The single-storey
addition at the right end has a C20 front door to the left and garage doors to
the right.

Interior: Modernised. The partition between the 2 rooms has been removed.
