SJ 50 NW ATCHAM C.P. A5, ATCHAM (south side)

5/11 Nos. 3-6 (consec.)


Row of 4 cottages. Late C18 or early C19, probably by John Nash and
possibly incorporating an earlier structure. Rendered over brick and
possibly timber frame with sandstone and cement rendered dressings; plain
tile roof. L-plan; Gothick style. One storey and attic and 2 storeys.
Quoins, coped verge parapets to west and dentil brick eaves cornices.
West front: central brick ridge stack and integral brick end stack to
right. 4-window front with gables over ends. Mainly 2- and 3-light
probably mid- to late C19 wooden casements; circa 1800 hipped Gothick
canted ground-floor bay beneath left-hand gable with continuous cill to
2-light ogee-headed windows with Y-tracery; small circular window in
wall above to right; segmental-headed boarded door between first and
second windows off-centre to right. North front: 3 gabled eaves dormers
with 2-light casements and scalloped barge boards with finials; 2 large
brick ridge stacks off-centre to left and right. 5-window front; mid-
to late C19 segmental-headed wooden cross windows; segmental-headed 7-
panelled door to right, and 2 segmental-headed boarded doors to left, one
to far left and one between second and third windows from left. These
cottages were probably intended as part of a picturesque late C18/early
C19 estate village scheme, including No.7 (q.v.), by Nash for the second
Lord Berwick. A series of painted panels hanging in Attingham Park (q.v.)
possibly depict Nash's intended scheme which pre-dates his similar but
more famous Blaise Hamlet near Bristol. Nigel Temple, A Recent Discovery
at Attingham Park; The Architectural Journal, Vol. 138 (1981), Pp.96-100.
