11/176 Nos 54 to 59
(inclusive) and well outside No 56



Block of six cottages. c1818. Local stone coursed rubble, nos 55,56 and 57 rendered and colourwashed; thatched roof
with gables and hips; brick chimney stacks with groups of flues set diagonally. 2 storeys, one bay each houses: houses
numbered from right to left. No 54 probably least altered externally in whole layout: segmental plan front projection,
leaded casements of 3 and 2-lights under segmental arches, with window to match on North gable; entrance in C20
thatched and stone porch on side. No 55 incorporated into no 56: pebbledash rendered, horizontal bar casements with
segmental arched heads, keystoned below; boarded door in North corner. No 57 rendered with ashlar lining; steel
casements and C20 pattern part glazed door. No 58 of two bays, of which bay 2 has a projecting gable: horizontal bar
casement windows; open timber porch to plain door set in side of projection, Britannia fire insurance plaque on gable:
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.
