Listing Text

SADDLEWORTH BOARSHURST LANE
SE 00 SW (south side)
6/17 The Farmhouse
and The Cottage
(formerly listed
as Three Storey
Loom Houses to
north west of
20/8/82 Ash Cottage)
G.V. II
Farmhouse and cottages. Various periods of construction from
early C18 to early C19. Coursed rubble and hammer-dressed
stone, much of which is watershot, with graduated stone
slate roof. The rear and right-angled range to right are of
the earlier date and were incorporated into the later
structure creating a 3-bay double-depth, 3-storey house with
workshop on the upper floor and 2-storey wing to right.
Stone quoins. Bays 1 and 2 have doors to the right and 2 and
4-light windows. The upper floors each have 4-light windows
in each bay; all have recessed flat-faced stone mullions.
Bay 3 (the lower 2 floors of the earlier building, the upper
of one of the last phases of construction) has 4-light
recessed cavetto-moulded stone mullion windows on the lower
floors and a 5-light recessed flat-faced mullion window on
the top floor. 2 ridge stacks. Blocked 6-light mullion
window to gable. The right-hand range has 2, 3, 4 and 6-
light recessed cavetto-moulded mullion windows. The rear has
similar 4-light windows but shows signs of being heightened
to create the workshop which has three 5-light flat-faced
stone mullion windows. One of the doors retains a good 4-
pane overlight. The workshop runs the full length of the
building the roof being supported on a queen-post roof
truss.
