4/18 Reading Room Cottage


House, mid C18th, altered. Slobbered rubble with slate roof. 2 storeys, 2
bays. Windows have plain stone surrounds.Door, between bays, has plain
stone surround and is approached by external steps. Above the doorway,
below the level of the present 1st floor windows, the outline of a blocked
3-light window with flat-faced mullions is visible. This, together with
the kneeler of the left-hand gable coping which is cut for a steeper roof
pitch, suggests that the house was originally thatched and that the eaves
have been raised. Adjoins Green Bank Cottage (q.v.) whose eaves were
raised at the same time. Listed for group value only.
