GV II

Small house and attached smithy. Probably C18 (date 1713 inscribed on smithy wall at junction), the house probably raised in C19; altered. The house (No.3) is of coursed sandstone rubble with quoins and 4 courses of large squared masonry at the top (above eaves level of smithy), with a graduated slate roof and brick chimney; the smithy (No.1) is of random rubble with a graduated stone slate roof. Linear plan, the house double-depth and double-fronted, and the smithy continued to the left single-depth, 2 bays. The house, 2 low storeys and 2 windows, has a simple square-headed doorway offset slightly right of centre, flanked by 3-light casements at ground floor and 2-light casements above (all these with renewed joinery). Chimney behind ridge to left. The smithy, one storey, has a wagon doorway to the left with wooden lintel, a square window to the right with wooden shutters, and to the right of this a quoin stone inscribed "1713". Beside the left corner of this range is a cubic cheese-press stone (erroneously identified in former list as anvil). INTERIOR: not inspected. Collectively all the buildings in Little Crosby Conservation Area form a valuable group of similar scale but varied dates, materials and style.
