No.9 (The Old House)
House of C18 and C19. Red brick with Swithland slate roof and ridge and
end stacks. 2½ storeys of 3 horizontal sliding sash windows. Cambered
lintels. Central C19 stone doorcase with pilasters and cornice on consoles
and blocked round arched doorway further right with 1-light casement
within it. On left end a small canted bay and a 2-light casement with 1-light
casement over and in attic. Mid C19 walling, casements and doors to rear.
2 storey extension to right with rectangular French window bay and 8/8
sash window over. Inside are chamfered beams, inglenook, slate floor, and
earlier C18 doors. A tie beam truss is visible on first floor. It appears
that an early C18 house was possibly refaced on the front later in the
century and then refaced to sides and rear in mid C19. County fire mark
above door. Fragments of original timber framing on garage to right.
