1906 by B Parker and R Unwin plan designs of 1898/9 published in 1901 by
Parker and Unwin in "The Art of Building a House". This, with the Birds
Hill development (qv), is the earliest known scheme based on the traditional
village green layout, and the prototype of all later development of this
type throughout the country. Grouped cottages in 7 one and a half storey
in blocks of 2, 4 and 5 houses, varying in design through judicious use
of irregular gables and dormers. The focal point of the composition is
the large central gable of Nos 12 and 13. Tiled roofs with brick ridge
stacks. Roughcast walls. Transom and mullion windows, some with glazing
bars. Recessed, arched doorways. Later alterations and additions. Included
as a seminal development concept.
