1/16 St. John's Well Cottage
- (The Lodge)

- II

A former lodge cottage to Barton Hall. Early C19. Single storey: the main
cottage hexagonal in form with conical roof, linked with another gabled range
set sideways-on to the street. In random kidney flint, with red brick
dressings in Tudorstyle and thatched roofs. The main cottage has a central
chimney-stack and paired casement windows with continuous hoodmoulds, the
lights divided by 2 vertical bars, with a central transome. One rear window
retains pintle hinges. Blocked original doorway with hoodmould: the present
C20 entrance door is in the linking section between the 2 parts of the
cottage. The adjoining building is in the same materials, and has bargeboards
carved in a Vitruvian scroll pattern with a deep hanging finial at the apex;
the upper part of both front and rear gables is infilled with an unusual
arrangement of small interwoven branches to give a rustic effect.
