Nos.2 and 3
Pair of cottages, now shop. Late C17, remodelled in the late C18/early C19,
possibly by John Nash. Timber framed, partly rendered, with rendered and
wattle and daub infill panels; half-hipped thatched roof. 2 framed bays;
remodelling in the Gothick style. One storey and attic. Central eyebrow
eaves-dormer with 3-light leaded casement. Framing: square panels, 2 from
sole-plate to wall-plate; short straight corner braces and long straight
tension braces. 2-window front, 2-light Gothick wooden casements with
leaded lights, Y-tracery, and boarded external shutters; 2 central boarded
doors with moulded architraves and leaded Gothick overlights with Y-tracery.
Interior: central collar and tie-beam truss with queen struts; timber
framed cross-wall with wattle and daub infill panels; first floor in left-
hand bay has been renewed, first floor in right-hand bay has chamfered beam
and joists; C17 newel staircase; C17 fireplace in north-east corner has
chamfered lintel with ogee-stops, and late C19 beaten copper Art Nouveau
surround from the former Raven Hotel in Shrewsbury. A circa 1900 photograph
in the shop shows the front of the cottages rendered and the former left-
hand corner stack. The pair of cottages was probably remodelled by Nash as
part of a picturesque village scheme including No.3-7 (consec.), Atcham
(q.v.). Nigel Temple, A Recent Discovery at Attingham Park, The Architectural
