railings and gates fronting road



Row of three cottages. Mid C19. Red sandstone squared rubble, steeply pitched diamond tiled roofs with overhanging
eaves, renewed brick stacks on ridges flanking central gable external stepped stack left gable end and on gable end
right return rear wing. "U"-plan with gabled centre block breaking forward. 2 storeys, 1:1:1 bays, all ovolo moulded

2- and 3-light casements, bell-cast tiled porches with pierced wooden gables set to right of respective windows,
studded plank doors. Lower gabled wings on returns with outshots. Spearhead railings set in dwarf walls swept up to
