21-MAY-01 Cherry Tree Cottage, Green View, Ledbu
rn, Bellamony and Puers
Terraced cottages, formerly workers housing. 1919-1920. Fred Rowntree for the Quaker Trust. Brick walls, tile roofs, wood windows (sashes and casements) and doors. Named, not numbered (Cherry Tree Cottage, Green View, Ledburn, Bellamony and Puers).
PLAN: Range of 5 attached cottages with projecting two-storey sections to each cottage.
FACADE: Alternating irregular bays of one-storey with low pitched roof and a projecting two-storey sections to each cottage--3 with gable ends and 2 with slightly lower hipped roofs, each with a central window. Prominent chimneys at roof ridge. Wood flush-framed multi-paned sashes and casements.
INTERIOR: Interior not inspected but thought to be plain as originally workers cottages.
SUBSIDIARY: Just off the 1919 Village Green at the core of the village of Jordans.
HISTORY: Construction of the village of Jordans, an ideal planned community for Quakers, began in 1919 to Fred Rowntree's designs of 1916. This terrace forms a group with the other surviving terraces around the Village Green, those first built at Jordans and intended for workers at Jordans Village Industries.
This terrace is listed for its contribution to the group value of the historically significant Jordans village and as a range of mostly unaltered and well-designed workers housing.
