LEIGH

771/0/10095 CINDER HILL LANE
20-DEC-04 Foxwold

II
House. Probably early C17, refronted in the late C18, refenestrated within existing openings in C20. The 2004 extension to the north in matching materials and conservatory are not of special interest.

MATERIALS: Timberframed, refronted mainly in Flemish bond brickwork with grey headers to ground floor and tile-hanging to first floor. Tiled roof with end brick chimneystack with base of sandstone (now concealed by later extension) and further brick ridge stack. Two storeys with attics in the gable end: irregular fenestration but two windows to front elevation. Casement windows, some with leaded lights.

PLAN FORM: A two bay end chimneystack house with outshot with catslide roof and L-wing.

EXTERIOR: Front elevation has two triple casement windows and wide central doorcase with plank door. Right side elevation has one casement window to ground floor and attic window in gable end. Rear elevation has projecting gabled extension.

INTERIOR: Ground floor has open fireplace with wooden bressumer and spice holes. Exposed spine beams and floor joists. The first floor has a smaller open fireplace to the principal chamber, spine beam with exposed floor joists and gunstock jowled posts. The attic has a roof structure with pegged rafters, clasped purlins, collar beams and some diagonal tension braces. C17 plank door beside the chimneystack in the attic.

STATEMENT OF IMPORTANCE: A substantially intact early C17 timberframed building refronted in the later C18 and retaining a readable plan form. The 2004 extension to the north in matching materials and conservatory are not of special interest.
