SJ 57 NE
South West of
3/43 Wing of former Aston Old
Hall, now Gamekeeper's
Cottage and store.
Gamekeeper's cottage and store, formerly a wing of Aston Old Hall,
later C16 altered. Pebbledash above rendered brick flush plinth;
indications of oak-framed structure beneath pebbledash. Graded grey
slate roof, formerly thatched. 2 storeys, 4 windows. Round-arched
central opening and 2 doorways with boarded doors, one apparently old
(broad boards on shaped wrought iron hinges) at front; 7 small-pane
horizontally sliding sashes and 1 replaced 3-pane casement. The left
structural bay is of longer span than the others. Each gable end has
a curved surface, out of plumb, suggesting warped oak frame beneath
pebbledash. The right gable is jettied above an oriel window now
masked in pebbledash.
A watercolour in the Aston papers at Aston Lodge shows Aston Old Hall
with Elizabethan framing comprising the present gamekeeper's house and
a main wing linking it to the Dovecote (q.v.).
