8/169 Bridgend Kennels
Detached house. Late C18. Flemish bond brown brick with red
dressings; limestone; brick chimneys; Welsh slate roof. Three-
storey. Front: central pedimented break forward without
fenestration on upper floors has round arched recess; stone
cornice with blocking course. Single-window fenestration to outer
parts of facade with 16-pane sashes having brick flat arches.
Broad stone band at impost level to central arch and lower narrow
band, both cut by windows. Off-centre gabled porch addition
appears C19 with round-arched doorway. Hipped roof with ridge-
mounted brick chimney having ashlar bands. Ends: central round-
arched recess and stone banding as to front; no windows. Parapet-
mounted chimney at north east end. Rear: central pedimented break
forward but no arch; fenestration 1:2:1, all 16-pane sashes except
centre right 12-pane sashes, producing curious asymmetry. Interior
not inspected. Recorded as a clothier's house, but design is
unusual and would suggest a more specialised use, possibly in
connection with the once nearby Bridgend Dyeworks, since
demolished. Documentary sources provide conflicting information.
