13/60 Bridge End House


House. Dated over former cross-passage entrance E A 1690 (Addison) E A Born 56,
There (sic) son R 86, Grace 81, with extensive alterations; inscribed over left
entrance B & B A (Backhouse & Barbara Addison) and now erased date thought to
have been 1792; further early C19 and mid C19 extensions. Incised painted
stucco, with V-jointed quoins and eaves cornice, on chamfered plinth. Graduated
greenslate roof with stone chimney stacks. 2 storeys, 4 bays with single-bay
extension under common roof and further right-angled single-bay extension at
front. Left entrance has top-glazed panelled door in fluted pilastered
dentilled-pedimented doorcase. Sash windows with glazing bars in painted stone
architraves. Right entrance has 1690 bolection surround with inscribed panel
above. Interior chamfered-surround doorway from cross passage has lintel
HIMSELF TO LIVE, ROBERT VAUX 1690. Rear wall has very much altered
stone-mullioned windows with mullions removed. Extension has large C19
chamfered-surround sash window. Sash window with glazing bars above in painted
stone architrave differing from rest of windows. Single-storey extension was
used as a shop but now part of the house. Former entrance in end gable wall,
now window, has reused lintel inscribed EX DONO ROBERT VAUX DE BROWNRIGG ANNO
DOMINI, 1688, from the demolished school in the churchyard. The 2 inscriptions
to different owners in 1690 seem to indicate that the house was built at an
earlier C17 date by the Vaux family (of Brownrigg) and the date was added to
that inscription by the Addisons.
