SJ 86 SW
4/65 St Mary's Cottage

House. c.1871. Shuttered concrete with a plain tile roof. Two
storeys. Entrance front: of 2 bays at left is a panelled front door
with trefoil headed panels to either side of which are metal window
frames with honeycomb-patterned glazing bars. To right of this is a
4-light ground-floor window. To the first floor at centre is a lancet
light and at right in the gable is a canted oriel of C20 supported on
a stone corbel. The right hand side has a projecting gabled wing to
left which has a 3-light casement window to the first floor. To right
of this at ground floor level is a lean-to C20 porch behind which is a
doorway with single-light windows at either side. At far right is an
addition of brick rendered in simulation of the concrete blocks at
left, and having a 2-light ground floor window. To the first floor
are two matching dormer windows of 2 lights each. Ridge chimney stack
at left of centre. The left hand gable-end has a 3-light casement
window to the first floor. To the interior is C17 panelling. The
house was built as a curate's house for the Church of St Mary, Newbold
Astbury. It displays a curious form of concrete shuttering designed
to imitate blocks of coursed rubble. A lattice of strips of wood was
made to imitate the joints in the masonry and hessian was placed
against this. Concrete was then poured into the hollow between this
front and a backing of planks of wood and the concrete then bulged
outwards slightly. The 'joints' in the 'masonry' were then grouted
with mortar to complete the deception.
