SX8751 RIDGE HILL
673-1/5/210 (South side)
23/10/72 Nos.9, 11, 13 AND 13A
and attached front boundary railings
(Formerly Listed as:
Nos.9 AND 11; 13 AND 13A)
House, now flats. Early/mid C18, refurbished in the C19, some
C20 alterations. Painted Flemish-bond red brick, some
plastered stone rubble to rear; stacks with rendered brick
chimneyshafts; slate roof.
PLAN: front block built along the street, down the hill, with
2- or 3-room plan and, at the right (uphill) end another
one-room section set back slightly from the main front. Main
block is double-depth with former service rooms rear left.
Main entrance to right of main block to a former cross
passage. The right end section (Nos 13 and 13A) certainly has
C18 origins but the upper section was built in the C19.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys with attics and half-basement, the right
end bay is 3 storeys. Main block with a regular 1:2:1-window
front of late C19 horned 4-pane sashes. Basement and
ground-floor windows all have low segmental brick arches and
all, except ground-floor left window, have projecting brick
keystones. First-floor windows have flat brick arches.
Left-hand basement doorway, to No.9, behind late C19 lean-to
porch; 6-panel door with faceted panels alongside a 4-light
window with margin glazing and coloured corner panes. Main
doorway at right end, to No.11, up steps from the road; brick
segmental arch with keystone, like the windows, contains
original bead-moulded frame and overlight containing probably
replacement top-glazed 8-panel door. Plat bands at ground- and
first-floor levels. Coved plaster eaves cornice. Roof in 2
sections; hipped section over right 3-window section
containing a front flat-roofed dormer, and another section to
left, gabled to right and hipped to left. All apexes have C19
terracotta finials. Right-end one-window front with same style
to ground and first floors. Second-floor large canted bay
window containing sashes without glazing bars. Deep eaves to
INTERIOR: Only a small part was inspected. It was mostly the
result of C20 modernisation but the basic layout and some of
the joinery was original. There is, for instance, plain
2-height panelling along right side of the passage which is
probably fielded on the other side (but is hidden). Some
fielded panelling is exposed at the back end of the passage.
More C18 features are suspected elsewhere despite obviously
extensive C20 modernisation.
SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: Late C19 cast-iron boundary railings with
ornate spear-headed finials along the front between the porch
and steps contains a gate at left end. Similar railings
fencing the steps and platform to the main door.
One of a good group of varied listed buildings at the bottom
of Ridge Hill.
