DOLTON SS 5712 14/51 Northbrook II House. Probably C17, possibly with earlier origins, considerably modernised in later C20. Partly rendered cob and rubble walls. Hipped thatch roof. 3 rebuilt small rubble stacks, 2 axial, 1 at side of rear wing. Plan: original plan obscured by C20 alterations and modernisations but likely to have been either a pair of cottages or 3-room-and-through-passage with lower end probably to the left heated by stack backing onto passage, small unheated room to centre and right-hand room heated by axial stack. The right-hand end of the house may have been an outbuilding and has a C19 or C20 leanto against its right end. The date of the wing behind the left-hand end is unclear but probably C19 and there is a similar date outshut to the rear of the house. Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical long 7-window front of later C20 1 and 2-light small-paned casements. C20 open-fronted thatch roof porch towards left-hand end with C19 plank door behind it. Leanto against right-hand end under catslide thatch roof. Small wing behind left-hand end and outshut along rear wall. Interior: inaccessible at time of survey.
