21-MAY-01 The Cottage
Cottage, formerly workers housing. 1919. Fred Rowntree for the Quaker Trust. Brick walls, tile roof, wood windows (sashes and casements) and doors.
PLAN: One double-depth range with three-part facade to long elevation.
FACADE: Deep pitched roof with central bay of projecting gabled roof to first floor. Central bay has central sash window at first floor, main entrance door at ground floor flanked by small windows. Sash window at ground floor on either side of central bay. End elevation dominated by large end stacks with diagonal shafts--2 to north gable, 4 to south. Multi-pane windows to front and rear of chimney at ground, first and attic floors of gable end.
INTERIOR: Interior not inspected.
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 cottage 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.
