WORKMEN'S INSTITUTE AND COTTAGES AT WHITWOOD
Miners' cottages.

Normanton,
Yorkshire.

1904

For Henry Briggs & Son.

 

Only one of the two terraces of  houses was executed.
The Institute has been converted into a public house.

According to Joanna Symonds Voysey noted in BA, 1908, that 'The Company found it necessary to build the houses so cheaply that architectural superintendance of the work was perforce left out of court'. A hall in memory of Henry Biggs was built at the back of the institute. This is probably not by Voysey, but is sympathetic to his work in style and materials (RIBA Drawings Collection, p. 44).

Houses and institute have roughcast walls, stone dressed windows and red tiled roofs.

Description on imagesofengland:

CASTLEFORD WHITWOOD C0MMON LANE SE42SW (north side) 4/10 Nos 1 to 15 (consec) 14.4.1975 Whitwood Terrace GV II Terrace of 19 dwellings. 1904, by C. F. A, Voysey for Henry Briggs & Son. Roughcast render on brick, tiled roofs. Long rectangular range of double- depth and double-fronted units. 1 and 2 storeys, in Arts and Crafts style, the facade rhythmically accented by emphatic gables of single 2-storey houses alternating with short storey ranges composed of pairs (a-b-b-a..a-b-b-a). Each house is symmetric, with a central doorway and two 3-light casement windows on each floor. Each of the gabled elements has small side windows to the door and flanking rectangular bay windows, all under a flat roof carried over the door as a canopy; an overlight to the door above the canopy, widely- spaced windows at 1st floor, the heads crossed by a band; and another band in the gable above. In the lower intermediate ranges each house has a flat canopy to the door, with an overlight above, a band over each ground floor window, over-sailing eaves with slender gutter brackets, and hipped dormers in the roof. Three tall chimneys on the ridge between each pair of gables. The rear, in matching style, differs in having one 4-light dormer to each 1 storey house, but the principal feature of interest is a wide segmental- arched recessed porch to each house, presumably intended to shelter services such as drying laundry, but now in some cases enclosed by glazed walls. All houses have individual back yards enclosed by brick walls (with back gates), incorporating in the rear wall a rectangular privy/coal shed building to each pair, with a square emptying door in the rear wall of each privy. History: built by colliery company to house colliery foremen. Reference: RCHM Workers' Housing in West Yorkshire, 1750-1920 (1986) pp. 116-118.
