SD3101 LITTLE CROSBY ROAD, Little Crosby 778-1/4/170 (West side) 26/03/73 Nos.5 AND 7 (Formerly Listed as: LITTLE CROSBY ROAD, Little Crosby Nos.1 AND 3-7 (Odd) Smithy (No.1))


Pair of cottages. Probably early and mid C18 respectively; remodelled and altered. Hand-made red brick, and some modern brick at 1st floor of No.5, which also has sandstone quoins to left at ground floor, right-hand gable rendered; graduated slate roof. Double-depth plan plus lean-to additions to rear, each cottage double-fronted. EXTERIOR: 2 low storeys, 2+2 windows; with a vertical joint between the two. No.5 has remains of a brick band over the ground floor; a simple square-headed doorway to the right, two 3-light casement windows on each floor, all with renewed joinery. Modern brick above 1st-floor sill level, and rectangular patching of modern brick directly below each of these windows, suggest that the building has been raised. Double-flue chimney stack on centre of ridge. No.7 to the right, almost symmetrical, has the doorway in the centre (with C20 door and canopy) and on each floor a 3-light casement window to the left and a 2-light casement to the right; all these openings are segmental-headed, and the windows have gauged brick heads narrower than the present openings, which all have renewed joinery. Ridge chimney at junction with No.5; large gable chimney on front slope to right. INTERIOR: not inspected. Adjoins No.3 to the left (qv), the junction being interlocked at 1st floor level. Collectively all the buildings in Little Crosby Conservation Area form a valuable group of similar scale but varied dates, materials and style.
