Description

DENWICK (DETACHED) RUGLEY NU 11 SE 10/91 Farmbuilding group north-west of Rugley Farmhouse II Planned farmbuildings. Foldyard group, early C19 incorporating an C18 cottage which was remodelled, and barn with engine house added, c.1840. Squared tooled stone; cottage rubble with cut dressings; barn and engine house squared stone with tooled-and-margined dressings, with chimney stack brick in English Garden Wall Bond 1 + 3 on tooled-and-margined stone base. Welsh slate roofs except for synthetic blue slates on east range; brick stacks to stable and cottage. Plan: Early C19 ranges around foldyard formerly open to south, the side ranges each with a short south-west wing. Barn, with engine house on east, runs north from centre of north range; cottage continues north range eastwards. Elevations to former foldyard now largely within later structures: 2-storey north range shows left-of-centre pair of segmental arches, boarded doors and part-slatted 1st floor windows. East range has pair of segmental arches, 6-pane sash window and boarded door. External elevations: North range has projecting 3-bay barn with boarded doors and part-slatted windows in chamfered alternating-block surrounds; engine house set back to left has similar openings, hip-ended roof and tall tapering stack to rear. East range shows stable doors and slit vents; south-west wing is stable with boarded door and shaped vents. West range shows part-slatted windows and boarded door; boarded double doors under timber lintel in west end of wing. Cottage has boarded door flanked by 2-light mullioned windows, and similar window in gabled dormer on left. Coped gables; ridge and reduced right end stacks. Outbuilding on left, linking to foldyard group, has boarded door, in chamfered alternating-block surround, and stable door. Interiors: stable has stall partition, with wrought-iron openwork top above boarded lower section, between cast-iron standards with moulded finials. Late C19 cowhouse and C20 covered yards occupying former foldyard, and Dutch barn ranges to north, are not of special interest.
