23.11.73 Nos 1 and 2 Ralphs Cross


Pair of cottages. 1864-66, by William Butterfield; altered. Red brick with some
blue-header diapering, red tile roof. Linear plan of 4 units centred on a common
chimney stack, each cottage having one room on each floor and a porch-cum-
stair turret at the side. Vernacular Revival style. Two-and-a-half storeys,
symmetrical, the main block of 2 bays, with the stair-turrets in set-back wings
at each end; the 2-bay centre has tall casement windows of 3 lights at ground
floor and 2 lights at 1st floor, set in slight recesses which have depressed
triangular heads, and at attic level narrow single-light half-dormers set closer to
the centre, with hipped roofs (the windows of No.1 with horizontal glazing bars,
those of No.2 with altered glazing); and a steeply-pitched hipped roof with a
large lateral chimney stack in the centre. The wings have diaper pattern at 1st
floor, have a single-light stair-window in the front wall, a doorway at ground
floor of the side wall (that to the left now covered by a modern single-storey
porch wrapped round from the rear), another single-light window at the top floor
above this, and matching hipped roof. The rear, which is rendered, has a single-
storey lean-to service extension (raised to 2 storeys at No.2).
