SE2534 HOUGHLEY LANE, Bramley Hill Top 714-1/26/1205 (East side (off)) 26/09/63 The Cottages, Nos.1 and 2 (Formerly Listed as: HOUGHLEY LANE, Upper Armley The Cottages (South of The Cottage))

GV II

Also known as: Cheadle Cottage (No.2) HOUGHLEY LANE Upper Armley. House, now 2 houses. Late C17 with C20 alterations. Coursed stone, concrete tile roof. Long and low, 2 storeys, 5 windows. 1st floor 4 lights each, some with centre mullions missing, centre window small single light. Ground floor has 3-, 4- and 5-light windows, continuous moulded string course rising over large lintel of moulded doorway, modern door, another doorway right. Modern casements, tall moulded end stack left, rebuilt stack centre. INTERIOR: No.2, also known as Cheadle Cottage, has a wide C17 fireplace with chamfered voussoirs, against the dividing wall with No.1. Probably originally a back-to-back fireplace, the main doorway (now No.1) opening into the kitchen, the surviving fireplace being in a heated parlour. The upper floor retains C17 plaster frieze decorated with mythological figures, with moulded cornice below, and original C17 roof trusses with king post and curved side braces. The re-roofing probably involved the removal of gable copings and kneelers; 2 finials dated 1663 are now garden ornaments. The scar of a porch over No.1 suggests that it was secondary but earlier. List descriptions refer to C17 porch with gable coping and 2 good finials.
