SE 12 SW Lower Edge

3/53 Quarry House

II

House now in 2 occupations. Early C18. Hammer-dressed stone, stone slate roof.
2 storeys to west fronting lane. East front has single storey building to the
right of a double-pile range with 2 gables. Irregular plan. West front of 4
bays. Bays 2 to 4 are rendered. Bays 1 and 2 are a pair of late C18 cottages
and have quoins, paired doorways with thin flat faced mullioned windows of 2
lights to either side with same over (some mullions removed). 3rd bay has
double chamfered mullioned windows of 5 lights to ground floor with 4 lights
over. 4th bay is gabled and has inserted doorway with monolithic jambs and
single sash window to 1st floor. Gable stack. Right hand return wall of 2
bays, double pile with gables and 2-span roof. String course. All windows are
double chamfered mullioned with square reveals and splayed mullions. 1st bay
has 4-light window with taking-in door over reduced to sash window. 2nd bay has
2-light window and original doorway to outer right hand side with much weathered
datestone said to record 1710 and the initials 'IIB'. Thus the original plan
had a gable entry. Over is gable stack. East front of 4 bays. 1st 2 bays are
gabled with 2-span roof, and have 4-light windows to both floors with doorway
broken between the ground floor windows. 2nd bay has taking-in door (solid) to
lst floor at which point the string course terminates. Bays 3 and 4 are
occupied by single storey outshot under cat slide roof and have early C19 doorways and windows, probably added to the main range. Return wall has wide gable and doorway to single bay barn area which has post and queen strut truss braced to post and arcade plate. This may have formed a warehouse connected
with textile manufacture prior to the single storey addition and later pair of cottages to lane. Preserved loose is fine fire plaque No. 126133.
