1 AND 2

(Formerly listed as:
1 AND 2

Pair of C16 cottages.

Timber framed and weather boarded cottages with thatched and slated roof. One storey and attic, with 3 gabled semi-dormers in hipped roof, and stacks to north and south ends. Four wooden casement windows, the central of 3 mullioned lights. Boarded door to centre left, and half glazed door to centre, with small fire-light over.

Miller's House, The Arbory and Nos 1 & 2 Thatch Cottage form a group.

The pair of cottages are shown on the 1879 Ordnance survey map but fabric and design would suggest that they date to the C16.
