various times, of single and double-depths and with 2
storeys. Rose Cottage and No.1 (formerly one house) have a
central door. The 4-light double-chamfered window to right

window and 13-light workshop window with recessed flat-faced
stone mullions are of a later rebuilding. Gable stacks and
lean-to to rear. Hill View Cottage fills in the external

of Rose Cottage (formerly a separate house) has a blocked
