- The Battlies House

- II

House. C16, C18, early C19 and early C20. 2 storeys: irregular form. Early
C18 main range in red brick with hipped slate roof and wide eaves overhang. An
internal chimney-stack with an ornate Victorian white brick shaft. The bricks
of the front are laid in sections in which Flemish and English bond alternate
in a very unusual manner; flat pilasters with simply-moulded capitals at the
corners of both front and side walls. 3 window range: small-paned sashes in
deep reveals; gauged heads and chamfered jambs to surrounds; keystones. Fine
doorcase and hood: fluted architrave and jambs; ornately-carved console
brackets supporting an early C19 replacement hood with shallow-pitched slate
roof, fluted bargeboards and spike finial. A wide half-glazed door, slightly
recessed. To the west of this range, and set back, is a small mid-C19 white
brick addition with a hipped slate roof and sash windows with single cross-
bars to the lights, flat arches and simulated keystones. A complex rear
range, at right-angles to the front, in Edwardian red brick with C20
plaintiled roofs, contains the oldest (early C16) part of the house: timber-
framed, in 3 bays, with an integral chimney-stack in a half-bay. One 2-bay
ground-storey room has an exceptionally heavy ceiling of plain joists and main
cross-beams with chamfer and curved stops; on the other side of the stack, a
one-bay room has main beams of a similar type. No framing is visible on the
upper storey, and the roof has been renewed.
