5/117 II

Pair of estate cottages. Circa 1903, probably by Ernest Newton. Red brick with tile-hung attic and pebbledashed porches with tile-hung gables. Plain tile roof, hipped over rear wings. U-plan. One storey and attic. South-east (garden) front: central brick ridge stack and brick ridge stacks at junctions of porches and cross wings, each of square section with 2 triagular-section projections on each face. Plain barge boards, pegged over purlin ends. Pair of gabled wings with recessed ground floor (not in line with gables) between, and flush attic with central raking semi dormer. 4-window front; 5-light leaded wooden casements (paired 4-light to dormer), those to ground floor with gauged- brick heads. Left-and right-hand return fronts: ground-floor 3-and5- light leaded wooden casements. Central 2-storey porch with open ground- floor consisting of 2 square oak posts supporting corner brackets and moulded bressumer; first-floor 4-light leaded wooden casement. Stone step up to boarded door with small window to-one side. Rear: wings with 5-light leaded wooden attic casements and catslide roofs each side of hip descending over set-back outshuts. One storey brick service block projecting between rear wings with hipped roof and catslide over outshut at end. Roofed passageways between wings and outbuilding leading to half-glazed back doors. Interiors not inspected. These cottages have been attributed (Saint) to Richard Norman Shaw who carried out work at Shavington Hall (demolished 1959) in 1885-6. Stylistically, however, they appear more likely to be the work of Ernest Newton who worked at Shavington in 1903. Andrew Saint, Richard Norman Shaw, pp.241- 3 and p.430.
