Crossing House

(Formerly listed under UTOXETER ROAD)



Railway crossing cottage. C.1849. Red English bond brick with blue brick diapering and ashlar dressings and a banded fishscale and plain tile roof. Single storey. The west front facing the railway has a central, gabled wing which projects slightly. This has a door with 4-centered, ashlar surround and, within the same surround, a pair of single-light casements to either side [the doorway had been partially blocked to its lower body with a window inserted above at the time of survey, 2005]. The gable contains a panel of diapering and has decoratively carved bargeboards which are cusped and chamfered. To the right is walling with diapering and to the left a window with 2-light casement set in an ashlar surround. There is a 2-flue, cross-axis ridge stack to right of centre. The north gable end has a projecting stack which dies back by ashlar offsets but has lost its brick flue. The gable has similar bargeboards to those seen above the door. At left is a lean-to which appears to be of a later date. The interior was not inspected.
History: In 1849 the Macclesfield and Colwich branch of the North Stafordshire Railway was opened.
