2 houses, probably originally one. Early C17, altered C18/C19, extended C20.

with rubble and blue-brick stacks. 3-unit and single-unit plans. 2 storeys.
Front has a segmental-arched entrance to a through alleyway, to left of which a
3-window section (The Cottage) has 2-light stone-mullioned windows to both
floors, most of which are probably renewed; to right of the alleyway, the
smaller section has a single window to each floor, both with chamfered surrounds
but no mullions, and has a doorway to extreme right. Roof of The Cottage is
thatched with flanking rubble stacks; roof of Park View Cottage is tiled with a
brick stack to left. C20 extension to rear of The Cottage. Interior: The Cottage
has a very wide fireplace bressumer, with ogee chamfer stops, over a reduced
open fireplace with old inglenooks in the blocking; part of first-floor
structure has a heavy spine beam and joists, all with ogee stops. Probably
formed from a 4-unit house with through passage, the smaller cottage being the
unheated service bay.
