Ivy Cottage


Small house. Circa mid C19, built for the Leigh estate. Flemish bond brick
to the ground floor, the first floor tile-hung with some blue diapering in the
tile-hanging; peg-tile roof; brick stacks. Tudor style.

Plan: A roadside house facing east on to Lower Street. Overall T plan, the
main block with a crosswing at the left (south) end; entrance on the east
front between the crosswing and main block. Probably 2-cell, a rear lateral
stack heating the main block.

Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2-window front, the gable of the crosswing
to the left with, alongside it, a 2-storey gabled porch, the first floor
jettied. The porch has pierced, cusped bargeboards and the gable is filled
with imitation timber framing. The porch was probably originally open-fronted
but now has a late C19 or C20 plank outer door. The crosswing gable has
pierced cusped bargeboards and a pendant at the apex. Its ground floor window
is an original 4-light transomed casement with polygonal iron panes, the 2-
light first floor window has been reglazed in the C20. To the right of the
porch there is one original 2-light ground floor casement with sexagonal iron
panes. The right return has one original ground floor window matching those
on the front and a first floor oriel on brackets, reglazed in the C20, with a
pentice roof. Matching bargeboards to the right gable end.

Interior: Not inspected but may retain original features.

The Leigh Estate, developed by Samuel Morley, Liberal M.P. and hosiery
millionaire, employed both George Devey and George and Peto on the estate
houses and cottages.
