SX75NE Hazard Cottage


Pair of cottages, converted to one. Dated 1792 with C19 rear range extended
in C20. Slate rubble. Rag slate roof with gabled ends with large projecting
gable end chimney stack with set offs, right hand stack rendered. Rendered
stone rubble range at rear with parallel gable-ended tiled roof.
Plan: Appears to have been a pair of single room cottages, each heated from
a gable end stack, and with pair of entrances at the centre of front.
Parallel range at rear added circa C19 and extended in C20.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Symmetrical 2-window front with widely-spaced small
window openings with timber lintels and slate cills and ground floor with
slate dripmoulds. C20 2-light casements inserted. Pair of plain doorways at
centre with C20 plank glazed doors, now enclosed within a large C20 glazed
conservatory. Range at rear has larger C20 casements.
Interior: To side of fireplace at south (left) end a slate inscribed "ATR
1792". Fireplace at north (right) end has granite lintel. Light scantling
timber ceiling joists. Solid partition between the 2 rooms, originally
separating the two cottages.
Note: Probably built to house quarrymen or lime burners at Hazard Quarry
immediately to north east where the limekilns (qv) have also been included.
