History

A mid C19 cottage built for the Grosvenor Estate and first shown on the 1870 Ordnance Survey. The Grosvenor family owned an extensive estate and mineral rights in the Halkyn area. Halkyn Castle was built for the second Earl Grosvenor in 1824-7 and was used as an occasional residence. The Earl was later made Duke of Westminster.

Exterior

A 2-storey 2-window house of rubble stone with bigger quoins, slate roof and stone end stacks. Windows are 16-pane hornless sashes with hood moulds and stone sills. The original central doorway is now replaced by a window. The 2-window rear has 2-light wooden casements, with segmental heads in the lower storey and wooden lintels above. An added single-storey gabled projection is to the centre.

Interior

Not inspected.
