The Cottages (East of
Part of the front range of a mediaeval building, probably of U-plan, and possibly a
lodging or guest house associated with one of the sixteen religious houses established
in the Upwell area. Now two cottages. Coursed Barnack stone ashlar with only slight
disturbance to front wall, some brick repairs to rear wall and partial rebuilding in
brick to left hand gable end. Probably cut down in C19 when pantiled roof and ridge
stacks built and now of two storeys. On splayed plinth. Ogee headed arch to former
central doorway, now blocked, flanked by attached chamfered shafts on octagonal bases
with the upper edge splayed. The shafts have been cut down, the one to the north is
stepped back at eaves height. Above the doorway is a splayed string-course. Left
hand gable end has another original doorway with one side of the jamb chamfered.
Inside all the details are of the C19.
