adjoining 2-cell cottages, each with a principal room to the front heated from
end stacks with integral rear outshuts and entrances in the centre facing the
stairs.

Exterior: 2 storeys and attic. Mansard roof with sprochetted eaves, gabled
at ends; projecting end stacks, the left hand stack larger with tile-hung set-
offs. Symmetrical 4-window east front with 2 first floor 3-light casements

Interior: There have been some alterations to the plan including the removal
of the partition between the outshut and principal room at the south end and
