SO 55 SW
5/25 The Weir House and
flanking walls (formerly
11.6.59 listed as House immediately
north of Bodenham Bridge)
House, once divided into two dwellings, now home for the elderly, and flanking
walls. Circa 1730 rebuilding of C17 or earlier building with early C20 altera-
tions. Handmade brick on sandstone base, some sandstone walling to rear and
left side; plain tiled roofs, partly hipped with large end brick stacks. Two
storeys and attic with dentilled eaves cornice. 1:3:1 bays; central three bays
are surmounted by a large gable, the outer bays project as narrow hipped-roofed
wings. Windows have gauged flat heads with dropped moulded keyblocks and are
all glazing bar sashes with moulded architraves. There are two ground floor
and three first first 18-pane sashes in the central part and also a round-
headed sash within the gable at attic level with sandstone imposts. The flank-
ing wings have narrow 12-pane sashes on both floors; the first floor windows
have been blocked. The central entrance has a C20 gabled canopy on wrought iron
brackets, a moulded architrave and a 6-panelled door, the upper four panels
of which have been glazed. There is a continuous lean-to outshut with a cat-
slide roof at rear. Interior: the central hall has an oak open well staircase
with turned balusters, moulded brackets and handrail and panelled dado. There
are ventilators in the attic ceilings which may indicate the house was once
used as a maltings. The flanking walls are brick with sandstone coping and vary
from about 15 feet high to a height of about 14 feet. Both walls are about
six yards long and terminate in square piers. (BoE, p 77; Brian;Dr A:

C19 and earlier, unpublished notes).
