Wolverhampton's Listed Buildings

Rose Cottage

3 Woodland Cottages, Penn Road

Listing:  House. Late C17 with later alterations.  Plastered brick with applied timber framing. ... Interior: ... chamfered beams and exposed joists ... timber framed cross wall with wind braces ... timber framed gable....

Comment:  Situated in a short cul de sac, it is opposite the more obvious looking timber framed building.  But that building, on closer inspection, seems to be made up from old timbers in modern times.  This is the genuine article and there seems no reason to doubt the date brick (just visible in the photo between the two left hand windows) which gives a date of 1671.  But what seems to be the timber framing, obviously is not - it is thin timbers stuck on.  But one gathers from the listing that the house is timber framed but brick cased.
