7 Hazleton is a detached cottage dating from the C17 and C19.

MATERIALS: the building is constructed from coursed and squared stone rubble with limestone quoins to the earlier bay, stone slate tiles to the main range and concrete tile to the rear extension. The stack is of modern brick.

PLAN: The main range is a two-room, single depth plan, with a central chimney breast, and a single roomed rear wing to the west.

EXTERIOR: The western bay, which formed the entire original building, dates from the C17, with a further bay added to the east in the C19, and a gabled rear wing dating from the same period. The main range is of one and a half storeys, and two bays. To the main elevation there is a late C19-early C20 plank door giving entrance into the earlier bay, and a three-light, double-chamfered, stone-mullioned casement window under a stopped hood mould. Above is a two-light stone-mullioned casement in a full gabled dormer. The bay to the right has similar C19 two-light stone-mullioned windows to the ground floor and the full gabled dormer. There is a second, half-glazed entrance door within a C20 reconstituted stone porch. To the rear, the main range and C19 wing have C19 two-light stone mullioned windows. There are C20 lean-to extensions in reconstituted stone to the front and rear of the building, and these are not of special interest.

INTERIOR: The interior has been altered in the late C20; the inglenook fireplace has been rebuilt and the wall behind rebuilt in concrete block. The roof structure to the original C17 bay is partly plastered but retains its original trusses and purlins, and some pre-C19 common rafters are visible.

HISTORY: The original building appears to have been a single cell cottage dating from the C17, extended by that addition of a further bay parallel to the main range in the earlier C19 and again at the same period by the addition of a wing to the rear. It was divided into two dwellings at a later period, though reverted to a single house by the later C20. Single-storey lean-to extensions were added in the C20 and some internal alterations were made at the same period.

7 Hazleton is listed at Grade II for the following principal reasons:
* The main bay is a substantially intact vernacular cottage dating from the C17, of good quality with some good details
* The C19 extensions are of similar quality and add to the building's special interest
* The retention of the early roof structure and original plan form outweigh the late C20 alterations to the interior
