26/04/74 Nos.11, 12 AND 14
(Formerly Listed as:
Nos.11-14 (Consecutive)
Iron railings to Nos 13 and 14)


4 houses, now 3 dwellings. Late C17 - early C18, built in 2
phases. Coursed and squared stone with slate roof. Nos 11 & 12
form a coherent pair, probably built as a pair of cottages in
the C18.
EXTERIOR AND PLAN: 2 storeys, each a single unit, double pile
plan with outer doorways with flat wedge lintels, and inner 20
pane sash windows in chamfered surrounds. 2-light casement
windows to first floor, renewed in original openings. Axial
No.14 incorporates the former No.13: left hand unit forms part
of the same build as Nos 11 & 12, with canted bay window to
ground floor, and 2-light window beneath gabled dormer with
glazed apex to first floor, and doorway to the right. Straight
joint to the right of this, marking extent of original
building, the former No.14: 4-light mullioned window to left,
and 2-light window inserted in former doorway against the
gable wall.
Gable wall appears to have been rebuilt, and is asymmetrical
with a short slope to the rear, and stack forward of ridge
line. End wall stacks to Nos 11 & 12. Cast-iron railings on
low plinth wall define small yard in front of No.14.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
