The address shall be amended to read "Nos 4 and 5 Croichley Fold
Cottages" and the description shall be amended to read as follows:

Formerly listed in error as Croitchley Fold Cottages. Farmhouse, now 2
dwellings. Late c17 but containing earlier fabric, enlarged and
remodelled in C18, altered in late C19; No.5 unoccupied and renovation
in progress at time of inspection (April 1992.). Formerly cruck-framed,
but now coursed sandstone rubble (with quoins to No.5), Welsh slate roof
(stone slate to single-storey extension), late c19 brick chimneys.
Irregular plan on east-west axis, the eastern half (No.5) probably
formerly single-depth 2-unit end-baffle-entry plan remodelled as
double-depth by additions to rear, with small extension to east end in
C18; and the western half (No.4) set back and in 2 portions, that
adjoining No.5 single-depth and that to the left projecting slightly to
the front and extended to the rear under a carried-down roof, with a
small outshut to this. Two storeys with single-storey extension, 2+2:1
windows. No.4 has a lean-to porch attached to the gable wall of No.5:
mullioned windows of 4 and 4 lights at ground floor, 4 and 3 lights
ahove, all with chamfered flush mullions, the 4-light windows lacking
one mullion and that to the left at 1st floor with a small light
inserted immediately to its right; and in the gable wall two 2-light
windows on each floor and a blocked 2-light window between those at
ground floor. Chimney behind ridge at junction. No.5 to the right, which
has graduated coursed rubble up to 1st floor sill-level and larger
rubble above (raised or rebuilt?) has an added gabled porch offset left
of centre, a 4-light chamfered flush mullion window to the left (lacking
the centre mullion) and a 5-light double-chamfered mullion window to the
right (lacking 2 central mullions) both with cavetto-moulded hoodmoulds;
and at 1st floor a former 3-1ight mullioned uindou to the left altered
as a 2-light casement and a former 4-light window to the right altered
as a pair of 2-1ight casements. Gable wall has blocked doorway with
triangular stone lintel (now covered by extension). Ridge chimney and
gable chimney. Set back single-cell single-storey extension (perhaps
formerly a loomshop) has blocked doorways at junction in both front and
rear walls, chamfered flush mullion windows of 3 lights at the front and
2 at rear, and a large inserted doorway in gable wall. Rear: No.4 has
small outshut under carried down roof, altered doorway next to this and
various small casement windows with wooden lintels and altered glazing;
No.5 recently rebuilt. INTERIOR: large cruck truss recently exposed at
1st-floor level in junction wall between Nos 4 and 5, on axis to rear of
present ridge; re-used beam at ground floor of No.5; otherwise, altered.
