GEDLING MANSFIELD ROAD
SK 54 NE
4/57 No. 321 and adjoin-
House and former frameshop, now a single dwelling. c.1800 and 1830, extended and altered in the late C20.
MATERIALS: Brick with gabled slate and plain tile roofs. There are two gable and single ridge stacks.
PLAN: T- shape plan, with the dwelling sited parallel to the street frontage and the workshop range extending at right angles to the rear.
The house is of two storeys and three bays. The windows are mainly C20 replacement glazing bar sashes, those to ground floor front with multi-keystoned heads. The front elevation has has a central doorway with a fielded panelled door below a three-pane overlight, flanked by single eight over eight paned sashes. Above are three similar first floor sashes, the central one narrower than the others. The south gable has a small Yorkshire sash to the left. The attached frameshop is of two stories and three bays, and has to its south elevation a central door with overlight now enclosed within a late C20 gabled porch and flanked by single casements. Above, are two wide three-light casement windows with C20 frames, and to their right are similar smaller window openings, all with glazing bar frames. A datestone is inscribed 'TW 1830'. The west gable incorporates a datestone inscribed 1824, and now has an attached late C20 single storey garage extension. The frameshop north wall has has 2 large casements and a blocked casement, together with a small late C19 two storey single bay lean-to addition with a small casement on each floor.
HISTORY: The house and frameshop are shown on the OS maps of 1882 and 1900 standing in relative isolation in an as yet undeveloped rural location. The footprint of the building appears to have remained substantially unchanged until the addition of the recent garage extension. The framework knitting industry developed alongside the machine-made lace industry in Nottingham during the C19, but, unlike lace manufacture, which developed rapidly into a factory-based industry, framework knitting outworking in frameshops such as that surviving at No.321 Mansfield Road continued well into the 1890s despite factory production.
REASONS FOR DESIGNATION DECISION.
No. 321 Mansfield Road and its attached workshop is listed at Grade II for the following principal reasons:
* It is a well-preserved example of a specialist industrial building type related to the domestic production of hosiery and lace in the East Midlands.
* The dwelling house and frameshop survive as two distinct elements of a single building with both domestic and workshop features, and illustrate the scale of C19 textile outworking in a nationally important textile manufacturing region.
* The combined dwelling and workshop ensemble is recognised as a nationally- significant building type in many of the key industrial communities of England, including the textile districts of Lancashire and Yorkshire, the metal working communities of Sheffield and Birmingham, and the boot and shoe manufacturing areas of Northamptonshire.
