G.V. II*

House. C17. English garden wall bond brick with C20 tile
roof. 3-unit plan with 2 storeys (plus attic storey). Bay 1
was rebuilt in the late C19. First floor band includes
courses of diagonally set bricks. Raised lozenge and square
panels in brickwork on all elevations. Door in Bay 1 with
square-cut stone surround. 2 ground floor and 3 first floor
windows all with stone sills, C20 casements, flat heads
below elliptical brick arches and continuous hoodmoulds
using shaped bricks. A fire-window between bays 2 and 3 has
been blocked. Series of 3 gables to front and rear give a
distinctive appearance. Each gable has a blocked 2-light
mullion window under an elliptical brick arch and hoodmould
with a rendered square panel above. 2 rendered chimney
stacks. The right return has 3 windows (as above) - one
blocked with a mullion, one with a horizontally sliding sash
and another with a C20 casement. A fourth was removed in the
C20 to insert a bay window. Fenestration to the rear is
equally varied but all windows are within the original
openings and retain brick hoodmoulds. Interior: inglenook
fireplace with cambered bressumer beam and heck post. Cyma-
moulded beams with ogee stops. Beams and post have unusual
carved corbels. Dogleg stair with closed string, oak splat
balusters and acorn finials to the newels which are carved.
Generally original oak 6-panel doors. Inlaid oak panelling
in first floor room. Tie-beam roof trusses with curved
struts. A well preserved example of a large brick house
which retains many original and unusual features. Buckley
family residence in 1618. J. Butterworth History of Ashton-
under-Lyne.
