Terrace of estate cottages, dated 1841 but probably incorporating C18 fabric.
Roughly-tooled stone with tooled-and-margined quoins and dressings; Welsh
slate roofs. Tudor style. 1 storey + attics and 2 storeys + attics, 3 + 1 +
3 bays. Slightly-projecting centre tower has long window holding 8-pane
casement above 24-pane sash; flanking 18-pane sashes, all under stepped common
hoodmould; date panel above, with Grey crest and motto, flanked by 5-pane
casements, all under common hoodmould; moulded string below parapet with
centre gable containing 2-light mullioned window, boarded with pigeon openings.
Coped side gables with end stacks. Side ranges: 3 renewed part-glazed doors
under flattened 4-centred arches within square frames; 2-light ground-floor
windows holding small-paned casements, under 2-light bedroom windows with
8-pane sashes in gabled half-dormers. All openings in chamfered surrounds,
those to ground floor with hoodmoulds. Chamfered eaves cornice. All gables
with pitched coping on moulded kneelers; stepped-and-corniced end and ridge
stacks with twin octagonal shafts.
Rear elevation of tower shows C18-type masonry and C19 attached turret with
boarded door and pent slab roof. The tower may have originated as a dovecote
before the cottages were built.
Flat-roofed rear outshuts to cottages are not of special interest.
