GV II

Cottage. Early C18, altered C19 and C20. Red brick in Flemish bond with flared headers. C20 plain-tile roof, brick end and front lateral stacks. 2-unit plan. 2 storeys and attic; 3-window range. Central 6-panel door with round-arched head and glazed top panels to arch, in C20 glazed conservatory porch. 3-light thin wood mullion and transom window to ground floor right with central casement and painted flat-arched brick head. 2-light casement to ground floor left and to 1st floor left and right, with similar heads. Blank 1st floor window with round-arched brick head. Small open pediment above framing 2-light casement with thin wood lintel. Rendered plinth with cellar window to left. Brick-coped parapets and pediment. Forms part of a group of 3 cottages with Nos 9 & 10 (qv) which have a strong resemblance to the Red Buildings built at the expense of Earl Cobham of Stowe after a disastrous fire in the town, which occurred 15 March 1725, rendering many families homeless. Those cottages stood in the old Cow Fair at the North End and were demolished 1866. Nos 8-10 are likely to have been built at the same time, perhaps as part of the same development.
