Two cottages, built as one house in two stages: Kestrel Cottage was rebuilt in

Cottage comprises a parlour block probably of C17 but remodelled in mid C19.

encased in C19 red brick, the rear plastered. Thatched roofs with C18/early
C19 casement dormers. An axial C17/C18 chimney of red brick, and a C19
chimney of gault brick to left. Small-pane C19 casements with cambered heads.

hall. 1st floor joists of c.1700; possibly sycamore, and set on-edge. In the
