9/139 Lawn Cottage and
25.6.74 railings and gate to
front (formerly listed
as Lawn Cottage)


House. Late C18, extended in C19. Timber framed, plastered, with some red
brick in Flemish bond, roofed with handmade red plain tiles. 3 bays facing SW,
with external stack at each end. Rear wing near left end with axial stack. C19
single-storey lean-to extensions roofed with slate to rear of main range and to
left of rear wing. One storey with cellar and attics. Ground floor, 3 sashes
of 12 lights. First floor, 3 C19 casements in dormers with zinc segmental
heads. Central 4-panel door in simple doorcase with pulvinated frieze and
moulded pediment. Plain parapet, gambrel roof. The left return is of exposed
brick. The rear wing has in the left return an original sash of 16 lights in a
slated lean-to dormer, in the rear elevation an original splayed bay of sashes
of 4-16-4 lights with some crown glass, and a half-hipped gambrel roof. A brick
wall extends forward from the left end of the main elevation, connecting with
wrought iron railings on a dwarf wall, forming the boundary with Church Road and
extending across the full width of the plot, interrupted by a central small
gate; spearhead points, cranked iron rear supports at intervals. The entrance
hall has on the right side an arched recess, the original stair, and behind it
an unusual folding door in 3 vertical sections with original butterfuly hinges.
In the ceiling of the left ground-floor room a turned wooden ventilator is
ducted to a small vent in the front elevation, a rare feature. At the right
end, behind the stack is a bread oven with lean-to roof, incomplete internally.
In the rear wing a C15 timber moulded with a bowtell in great casement is
re-used as a ceiling beam. This is not the house described as Lawn Cottage in
RCHM 5, wrongly derived from the 25" O.S. map.
