Red Rose Cottage


House. Circa early C17 or an earlier house remodelled and extended in circa earlier C17; the lower right hand end was demolished possibly when the front wing was added no later than the mid C19. Rendered stone rubble. Asbestos slate roof with gabled ends and red clay ridge tiles, some natural slates remain at the left end of the main range. Large rendered rear lateral stacks heightened in brick and rendered. Plan: L-shaped on plan. The original house was in the main range. It has a 3-room and through passage plan, the lower right hand end has been demolished from the lower side of, but not including, the passage; the relatively large room at the higher left end may be an early to mid C17 enlargement of a smaller inner room. The hall was possibly open to the roof originally, in which case the lateral stack at the back with its integral stair turret (the latter now demolished) could have been an addition of circa early C17, the date of the hall ceiling. The wing at right angles to the front of the higher left hand room is of uncertain date but it is not later than the mid C19 and may have been built when the lower right hand end was demolished. In the late C20 the hall and through passage were united by the removal of a plank and muntin partition and the newel stairs were removed from the back of the hall. Exterior: 2-storeys. Asymmetrical 3-window range and projecting gable- ended wing to left. C 10 1, 2 and 3-light casements some with glazing bars, except for a circa late C19 2-light casement with glazing bars at the centre of the first floor. Wider former passage front doorway to the right with a late C19 door, the bottom panels flush, the top panels moulded, and a slate lean-to canopy over. Similar canopy over doorway to the left hand wing in the angle with a C20 glazed door. Also C20 casements on the inner right elevation of the wing. Rear elevation: The wall at the left hand lower end projects and incorporates the hall's rear lateral stack, the former stair turret and passage back doorway which now has a C20 glazed door. The rear wall to the right has an asymmetrical arrangements of 2 Cl9 2-light first floor casements with glazing bars and a large late C20 casement on the ground floor to the right; to the left of the latter a later C20 glazed garden door and a small single-light window immediately to the right of the hall stack. Interior: The hall has a chamfered cross-beam with one remaining pyramid stop and chamfered joists with straight-cut stops. The halls rear lateral fireplace has a chamfered timber lintel with indeterminate stops (the chamfer is only thin), and an oven. The head beam of the former plank and muntin screen at the lower end of the hall survives, but the newel staircase the back of the hall has been removed. Roof: There are 2 trusses at the higher end with threaded purlins and trenched for a diagonal ridgepiece and halved for notched lap-jointed collars which are missing.
