1/62 Valley House


House, mid C18 with core of c.1600. Red brick, with bands of gauged brick at
1st and 2nd floors. Hipped slated roof with axial chimney of red brick. 3
storeys, 5 windows. Small-pane sashes with flat arches of gauged brick. Pair
of entrance doors each with 3 fielded panels. Semi-circular fanlight with
radiating bars, and a pair of Roman Doric pilasters supporting a broken
entablature and shallow pediment. A good mid C18 staircase rises through 3
storeys and has console brackets at each tread, turned balusters and moulded
handrails. Small single-storey bays of red brick with sashes were added to
left and right gables in late C19, and the 2nd storey walls raised and roof
remodelled. At the rear is an earlier 3-bay timber-framed hall range, with 3-
bay parlour cross-wing of c.1600. A fragment of hall window has a hollow-
chamfered square mullion, suggesting a possible earlier C16 core. The parlour
has main beams channelled and with ovolo mouldings in 2 orders. Good wind-
braced clasped-purlin roof over the parlour wing. The rear ranges were
largely encased in red brick in C18 and C19.
