moulded inside and with leaded panes; all the ground floor windows are late

The doorways, both with slate canopies; left-hand with plank door and outer
half door; right-hand doorway converted to window but retaining outer half
door; steps from road to both doorways.
The wing at rear was probably originally an outbuilding and has hipped
thatched roof. Low-pitched single storey lean-to on left gable end.
Interior: solid cob wall rising into roof between the 2 cottages. Small
cantling chamfered ceiling beams closely spaced. Roof: halved collars
lapped to the principals with morticed apexes. Lower left cottage has
