2/15 No. 36
- II
House. 1906. By E. Wood and J. H. Sellers. Brick with flat
concrete roof. 3 bays and 2 storeys with later flat-roofed
addition to rear and garage to left. A central door with
glazed upper panels sits within a brick recess all below a
leaded fanlight with a dentilled transom. 2-storey canted
bay window in bay 1. Windows have timber mullions (and
transoms on the ground floor) and leaded lights. They are of
2, 3 or 4 lights and have stone sills. The stone-coped
parapet is enriched by diamond motifs in raised brickwork
and rises to a higher level at each corner. Arched window to
left return. Timber-mullioned windows to rear. Chimney stack
to left. The house is the first which Wood designed with a
reinforced concrete flat roof. It is notable for its use of
the new materials as well as traditional materials and
motifs in the same design. Illustrated in J. H. G. Archer,
"Edgar Wood (1860-1935)" Transactions of the Lancashire
and Cheshire Antiquarian Society, vol. 73-4, 1963-4.
