The Island - The Contribution of key unlisted buildings
There are several buildings which, though not listed, nevertheless make an important contribution to the character and appearance of the Conservation Area. Some are described below.
Colne Cottage stands on the island. It is of late Victorian date, and has gables with bargeboards and a circulare turret with Gothic style windows. The whole property is rendered and painted blue, giving it a striking appearance within its island setting. It is a building of character and interest.
This ia an attractive building constructed att he turn of the 19th Century. The gables to the southeast and southwest elevations are the dominant characteristics with their decorative white bargeboards and clay tiled roofs. The bright white render is effective in ensuring that the red brick quoins, and detailing around the windows are prominent as well as attractive design features. The chimneys are also important.
The Loft is one of the older buildings in the Conservation Area and, although altered, still contains a significant amount of historic fabric. It is gable-ended property with the white bargeboards and clay tiled roof. The first floor windows are attractive features due to their small size and location and give character to the building. However, some of the ground floor windows have been renewed with windows of unsympathetic design.
