SD3101 LITTLE CROSBY ROAD, Little Crosby
778-1/4/170 (West side)
26/03/73 Nos.5 AND 7
(Formerly Listed as:
Nos.1 AND 3-7 (Odd)
Smithy (No.1))


Pair of cottages. Probably early and mid C18 respectively;
remodelled and altered. Hand-made red brick, and some modern
brick at 1st floor of No.5, which also has sandstone quoins to
left at ground floor, right-hand gable rendered; graduated
slate roof. Double-depth plan plus lean-to additions to rear,
each cottage double-fronted.
EXTERIOR: 2 low storeys, 2+2 windows; with a vertical joint
between the two. No.5 has remains of a brick band over the
ground floor; a simple square-headed doorway to the right, two
3-light casement windows on each floor, all with renewed
joinery. Modern brick above 1st-floor sill level, and
rectangular patching of modern brick directly below each of
these windows, suggest that the building has been raised.
Double-flue chimney stack on centre of ridge. No.7 to the
right, almost symmetrical, has the doorway in the centre (with
C20 door and canopy) and on each floor a 3-light casement
window to the left and a 2-light casement to the right; all
these openings are segmental-headed, and the windows have
gauged brick heads narrower than the present openings, which
all have renewed joinery. Ridge chimney at junction with No.5;
large gable chimney on front slope to right.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
Adjoins No.3 to the left (qv), the junction being interlocked
at 1st floor level.
Collectively all the buildings in Little Crosby Conservation
Area form a valuable group of similar scale but varied dates,
materials and style.
