and railings to street


House, including railings to street. C18 or earlier, remodelled 1830-5 by
H.F. Lockwood of Hull for Joseph Dent. Rendered limestone rubble and brick
with sandstone ashlar dressings. Plain tile roof. Cast-iron railings to
street with ashlar piers. Plan: 2-rooms with opposed central lobby entries
and kitchen extension to east end. Gothick style. Garden Front to south,
facing the Park: 2 storeys, 3 bays; symmetrical, with single storey 2-bay
extension to right. Moulded plinth, stepped buttresses at angles and
flanking entrance bay. Enclosed porch has chamfered Tudor-arched entrance
with hoodmould, moulded dripstone and low stone-coped gabled roof. Part-
glazed pointed inner door with Gothick-style traceried panels and shields.
Boldly-carved Dent arms above with motto "Patentia et Perseverentia".
Recessed full-height window bays to either side with moulded reveals and
twin cinquefoiled lancet windows with glazing bars to each floor, separated
by foiled roundels bearing carved letters I D. Hoodmoulds over windows
with square flower moulding and curled stops linked to string course below
coped parapet which rises to a steep gable with carved finial over entrance
bay. Buttresses have pinnacles with gabled finials. Coped gables have
similar pinnacles rising from corbelled wall-shafts at gable-ends. Central
stack with 4 octagonal shafts. Extension to right has 3 casements, 2 in
chamfered reveals, door to right and low-pitched roof with tall central
octagonal chimney (former ornate chimney-top now stands in garden). Street
front details similar to Garden Front: plinth, buttresses, traceried-
panelled door in moulded arch and chamfered reveal with hoodmould, twin
ground floor lancets in reveals with hoodmoulds, similar first floor window
above entrance, stringcourse and parapet. Gothick-style railings flank
entrance and extend between chamfered ashlar posts across street front of
cottage. Interior not investigated. Joseph Dent, of Ribstone Hall, York,
had the cottage embellished and a tomb erected in the garden (q.v.) in
memory of his father Jonathan Dent, a Quaker and notable Winterton
eccentric. W. Andrew, History of Winterton, 1836, 19-22. N. Pevsner and
