originally one house and later extended and divided into cottages or a row
of cottages from the beginning. It is now a single depth 4-room plan, the
2 centre room heated from lateral stacks at the back, the right hand room
has a gable end stack and the left end room is unheated. If there were a

C20 2-light casement to the left. On the ground floor late C19 and C20 4-
pane sashes, a small single fixed-light window to the left and a C20 3-
light window with top opening lights, all with wooden lintels. No 1 has a
late C19 glazed and panelled door to the right with a late C19 or C20
slated gabled canopy on brackets. No2 has a late C20 divided glazed door
to the right of centre and another similar door at the left end of the
front the latter with an asbestos slate canopy. The left hand end of the
front wall projects slightly.

on the ground floor with glazing bars.

2 rear lateral fireplaces has a timber lintel with a thin chamfer with ogee
stops, the left hand fireplace has a cambered timber linel with run-out
stops to the chamfer. Closely spaced light cantling and roughly dressed
ceiling beams.

existing roof was removed in C20; it was thatched and had straight
principal rafters.
