14/35 The Cottage (formerly listed as
The Cottage, formerly known as
6.12.76 Corse Grange Cottage)


Small house: 1848, for the National Co-operative Land Company by
F. O'Connor. Painted brickwork, stone plinth, slate roof. Three
bay, 1½ rooms deep, single-storey. Centre bay projects slightly
with gable over; glazed front door up one stone step; single-
light wooden casement either side, 2-light casement in wings, all
with flat rubbed brick arches. Windows all appear to be original.
Plain string course to centre, slightly projecting brick eaves and
verge courses; quatrefoil ventilator in gable: plain verge rafters
on shaped corbels at front; brick chimney end gables and centre
rear. Original lean-to rear rooms. A good example, apparently
very little altered, of Chartist cottages; originally with 2 or 3-
acre plot. Listed principally for historical and sociological
interest; forms group with other Chartist cottages (q.v).
(A.M. Hadfield, The Chartist Land Company, 1970)
