no 59 has plain casements, with later C19 brick and tile porch on South gable, framing boarded door. Outside no 56,
centrally lined on access road, is a well with C20 stone base with timber lid and timber and thatch cover - probably
the original water supply point (a later pumphouse, previously listed, now demolished). Interiors of houses not seen.
Newtown is a planned layout, of c1818, with originally some 80 thatched cottages: it is said to have originated as a
vote-catching scheme. This block, although substantially modified with new windows etc, preserves enough of the
original character to give a general idea of the original concept.
