Listing Text

SE172397 (north side)

7/8 Nos 1 and 2
(Gill Beck


House, now 2 dwellings. Early-mid C18. Hammer-dressed stone,
dressed quoins, stone slate roof. 2 storeys. 2 cell, central
lobby-entry plan with rear wing. 3-bay symmetrical facade.
Doorway with raised monolithic jambs and lintel has cyma-moulded
surround. Above is circular window with raised keystone. To
either side on each floor double-chamfered mullioned windows with
raised surrounds of 2 wide lights, formerly of 4 lights. Coped
gables with kneelers, and central stack to ridge. Rear wing at
right angles, has 3-light flat-faced mullioned window with slightly
recessed mullions (lacking a mullion) to each floor and a semicircular-
arched window above an inserted doorway. Gable stack. The fenestration
of the facade bears a striking similarity to No 29 Station Road (q.v.)
which is dated 1718. It is likely that this house was constructed
around that time and possibly by the same mason.
