8/61 Nos 1-4 (consec)
Row of 4 cottages, the core of the range being a C17 or earlier house, the range
divided into almshouses and probably extended in the circa late C18. Stone rubble to
the front, cob on stone rubble footings to the rear which forms the south boundary
wall of the churchyard. Slate roof gabled at ends, formerly thatched. 4 chimneys:
gable end stacks, the left-hand stack projecting with a bread oven, the shaft
dismantled in the late C20; projecting rear lateral stack with set-offs and a bread
oven, 1 axial stack.
The original plan may have been a 3-room and cross passage house, the hall heated by
the lateral stack and the lower end and inner rooms heated. The house was probably
extended at the right (east) end in the C18 when it was divided into church
almshouses. 2 storeys. Long 8-window range with porches with slopings slate roofs
carried on stone cheeks with squints. 3 buttresses to the front and regular
fenestration of sash windows with glazing bars.
Interior Nos 2 and 3 (probably the former hall and inner room) have chamfered cross
beams, no 3 with step stops. The fireplace to the lateral stack is partly blocked
but may conceal earlier features. Roofspace not inspected but may be of interest.
An attractive row of cottages forming a group with the parish church.
