5/72 No.4, Riverside Cottages
16.1.81 and No.5 (Riverside
Formerly listed as No 4
GV Riverside Cottages and
II Riverside Cottage)
Block of 2 attached cottages. C18/early C19. Timber framed, weatherboarded,
roofed with handmade red clay tiles. Facing E, with one internal stack in front
pitch of roof. Lean-to extensions to rear (slated on No.5). 2 storeys and
attics. No.4 has one C20 casement with external plain shutters on each floor,
and a C20 half-glazed door. No. 5 has one late C19 sash of 16 lights on the
ground floor, and one late C19 casement of 4 lights on the first floor, and a
plain door with simple fluted jambs and plain canopy. A straight joint through
the building and a ripple in the roof indicate that the 2 cottages are of
different builds. This block and nos 1-3 (not listed) are enclosed in an
isolated sea wall of earth faced with slabs. The tithe award of 1840 shows 2
tenements, and an ancillary building to the rear, since demolished (Essex Record
Office, D/CT 133). The Ordnance Survey map of 1873 shows the block increased to
3 cotttages, reduced to 2 again in the Second Edition of 1896.
