4/72 The Cottages and garden wall



House and row of 4 cottages (formerly 5). Earliest part is mid C18 (the
southern most house and its neighbour), the rest probably late C18 to early
C19. Brick throughout with Welsh slate roofs, although 1 roof has been
replaced by modern tiles. All are 2-storeyed, the southern most house being
the tallest building in the row, with doorway to left and 2 3-light casements
with transoms and lower opening lights, flush framed and with cambered brick
heads. 1 bay to left also belongs to this cottage although it reads with the
next as a 3 bay arrangement with doorway flanked by 3-light casements with very
deep cambered brick heads with keystones to ground floor. Moulded brick sill
band continues across the southern most house. The rest of the row is lower,
brick with some dark headers, each cottage 2-storeyed, a single or 2 unit plan
with cambered heads to lower openings: doorways and 2-light casement windows,
some renewed, but 1 retains original door in moulded wood architrave. Gable
end stacks. A brick garden wall is attached to the southern most property and
beyond this a length of mud wall runs east-west, with slate copings and cobble
