rebuilt stonework at first-floor level. Entrance to Star Cottage is at the
rear of the building, via the right return. Sir William's father, Sir John
(d1815) was responsible for the rebuilding of Ripley Castle. Sir William
used the flower motifs, Ingilby stars, 2-piece lintels and window form from
the pedestrian entrance to the gatehouse and the windows of the north
(coach-house) range of the castle for several houses in the village. The
Market Place facade is almost identical to that of Castle Close, differing
only in the chimney position. Other similar buildings are Vale Lodge,
Birchwood Farmhouse and Horngarth. Like Horngarth, Star House was formerly
an inn, The Star, which closed c1915. The engineering workshops and
outbuildings range to rear (qv) were originally the stables to the inn.
