7/296 Nos. 41 to 46 (consec.)


Range of 6 attached cottages. Circa 1830. Flint rubble with dressings and
chimneys of gault brick, and some red brick, roofed with slate. Main range
facing SW with 3 axial stacks, and rear wing at left, projecting to left, with
one internal stack. 2 storeys. C20 single-storey lean-to extension with felt
roof in rear angle. Each cottage has in the main elevation one window on the
ground floor and one on the first floor, and a door. In addition there are 3
false windows on the first floor, each coinciding with a party wall. No. 41, at
the left end, retains the original horizontal sashes of 15+15 lights on the
ground floor and 12+12 lights on the first floor. All the false windows are
original horizontal sashes of 12+12 lights with crown seconds glass. All the
other windows in this elevation are early C20 casements of 8 lights. Segmental
arches. All the doors are original, with moulded flat canopies on profiled
brackets; that of no. 42 has an inserted diamond light and false hinges, and
that of no. 45 has an inserted square light. Plain band of 2 courses of brick
at the height of the first-floor window sills. Hipped roof of shallow pitch.
The right return has 2 early C20 casements of 8 lights on each floor. The left
return has on the ground floor 3 original horizontal sashes of 15+15 lights, and
on the first floor 3 original horizontal sashes of 15+15, 12+12 and 12+12 lights
respectively, one of which is false. In front of projecting wing, C20
half-glazed door and first-floor window of 20 lights. The rear elevation has

present in the tithe map of 1839 (Essex Record Office, D/CT 355).
