12/148 The Cottage (formerly
listed as 'Kelfield')



12/148 The Cottage
(formerly listed as
1.3.67 "Kelfield")


House. Dated 1689, with C19 fenestration and unsympathetic alterations of
late 1970s, including pebbledashing and refenestration of sides and rear.
Brick, pebbledashed. Welsh slate roof. Plan: 3 rooms with lobby entry to
left. 2 storeys with attic, 3 bays. C19-C20 sandstone plinth. Entrance
has C20 doorcase with 4-panelled door in reveal, flanked by 12-pane sliding
sashes with frosted glass, one to left and 2 to right. Wide stucco first-
floor band carried on partly-restored cyma reversa moulded brick corbels.
First floor: moulded terracotta or carved stone segmental pediment above
entrance carried on moulded brick corbels, containing recessed square panel
with 2 hearts and inscription in relief:


Moulded brick corbelled eaves cornice. Deep C20 boxed eaves. Rebuilt
brick-coped shaped gables. End stacks to right; axial stack to left. C20
rebuilt wing walls to either side are not of special interest. Left gable
end has inserted C20 2-light casements to ground and first floors, single
similar attic window. Right gable end has pair of C20 inserted narrow attic
casements. Rear, facing River Trent, has inserted C20 glazed door, C20 2-
light and 3-light casements. First-floor band with C20 corbels, original
corbelled eaves cornice. 3 large plain skylights. Interior. Largely
remodelled, contains chamfered spine beams. Perhaps built for the Everatt
family, recorded at Kelfield in the late C17 - early C18. An important
survival, reflecting the local influence of the C17 Dutch drainers, and the
only example of a house of this period with curvilinear gables in South
Humberside, but marred by the 1970s alterations. N Pevsner and J Harris,
The Buildings of England: Lincolnshire, 1978, p 334; photographs in NMR.
