6/22 Milestone Cottage


House, right half of a pair. C18. Squared coursed rubble, the upper courses
better cut than those below, slate roof, probably replacing thatch. Two
storeys, 2 windows: ground floor has flat-roofed slightly canted bay, former
shop window, and a 15-pane horizontal fixed casement, first floor with two
small 2-light leaded casements with early fittings. Off-centre left C20 glazed
door. Back has good 2-light C18 casement with fittings at first floor. Brick
gable stack to right. One storey wing at back not of special interest. The
walling at front and gables suggests a roof raising. Name derives from
milestone at front of cottage (q.v.)
