26/03/73 Nos.1 AND 3
Smithy (No.1)
(Formerly Listed as:
Nos.1 AND 3-7 (Odd)
Smithy (No.1))


Small house and attached smithy. Probably C18 (date 1713
inscribed on smithy wall at junction), the house probably
raised in C19; altered. The house (No.3) is of coursed
sandstone rubble with quoins and 4 courses of large squared
masonry at the top (above eaves level of smithy), with a
graduated slate roof and brick chimney; the smithy (No.1) is
of random rubble with a graduated stone slate roof. Linear
plan, the house double-depth and double-fronted, and the
smithy continued to the left single-depth, 2 bays.
The house, 2 low storeys and 2 windows, has a simple
square-headed doorway offset slightly right of centre, flanked
by 3-light casements at ground floor and 2-light casements
above (all these with renewed joinery). Chimney behind ridge
to left. The smithy, one storey, has a wagon doorway to the
left with wooden lintel, a square window to the right with
wooden shutters, and to the right of this a quoin stone
inscribed "1713". Beside the left corner of this range is a
cubic cheese-press stone (erroneously identified in former
list as anvil).
INTERIOR: not inspected.
Collectively all the buildings in Little Crosby Conservation
Area form a valuable group of similar scale but varied dates,
materials and style.
