Spring Cottage and

Warehouse and Bridgewater Canal Company agent's house. Early C19. Brick
in English garden wall bond; slate roofs. The warehouse (3 storeys) and
house (2 storeys) are of one build and are aligned E-W along the S bank
of the Bridgewater Canal. Warehouse; both fronts almost identical, 5 bays,
the second from the E with opposed taking-in doorways to each floor (one
with original or early planked doors with strap hinges), all under projecting
gabled cathead with hoists intact. Doorway to yard (S) converted with sliding
door. Windows all under segmental brick arches with various (20 frames
and casements ; one window opening (to N) altered. Later lean-to in brick
to S. House adjoins to W, its N face flush with warehouse, but projecting
considerably to S: regular 2 window range to both canal and roadside; the
former with 3-light casements under flat arches, and a tiny 1st floor left
(perhaps to light stair). Roadside front: ground-floor windows under segmental
arches ; all windows have late-C19 horned sashes (with glazing bars to upper
sash only). Doorway to right, with round-headed arch and fanlight, panelled
door. End doorway with stone surround, the jamb to the right also forming
the rounded quoining to the SW angle of the house. Low contemporary out-build-
ings to E and W. Interior not inspected. These buildings are understood
to be the last surviving 'station' (for receiving goods, mainly for Manchester,
and despatching agricultural goods and paper from Partington Mill) on the
Bridgewater Canal.
