TQ59NE SANDPIT LANE, Pilgrims Hatch 723-1/5/236 (East side) 20/02/76 Langtons Forge (Formerly Listed as: SANDPIT LANE, South Weald Langtons Forge)


House with forge to S end, now house. C18, C20. Red brick, peg-tiled mansard roof, C18 stack at each gable end. Rectangular plan. EXTERIOR: one and a half storeys. 2 window range with central door, 2 dormers with sloping roofs above lower windows, small dormer window central over door. All windows of the house are C20 casements with diamond lattice panes, ground floor 2-light with upper light, principal dormers 2-lights. Door C20 boarded with central light and ironwork. Forge, red brick, peg-tiled pitched roof, three C20 3-light casement windows with segment heads, diamond lattice panes. N end simple projecting lean-to, brick rendered and colour washed with slate roof, 2-light casement window as rest. Rear, E elevation. Forge projects slightly and both units have pilaster buttresses. House unit has two 2-light and top light casements and one single-light casement. Forge, two 2-light casements with top light and central French window with diamond panes. N end lean-to C20 boarded door with central diamond paned light and a single casement window. S end elevation C20 French window with side lights, diamond paned. N end elevation. Lean-to with two 2-light casement windows, single casement window above in rendered and colour washed end wall. INTERIOR: refurbished in C20. Forge all renewed in 1947. House interior also considerably renewed. 2 old principal joists exist, a binding joist with lambs' tongue chamfer stops and a bridging joist, more massive and apparently earlier. This has common joists attached and carpenters' assembly marks exist on both that match except that the common joists are not in perfect order. These assembly marks are earlier in style than the date of the house and the joists may have been derived from elsewhere. The S end of the forge appears to have been slightly lengthened in the C20 refurbishment and a diagonal mark on the roof suggests that it was originally hipped.
