History

This pair of attached cottages date from the early C19. They were originally built as three dwellings and are depicted as such on the first edition Ordnance Survey map of 1888 and also on the third edition map of 1932. Sometime after this date, the central and right-hand cottages were converted to a single dwelling.

Reasons for Listing

378 and 380 Bloomfield Road and the attached railings are listed at Grade II for the following principal reasons:

* Architectural interest: despite the conversion of two of the cottages into a single dwelling, they are externally well-preserved early-C19 workers' cottages;
* Design interest: their symmetrical and balanced design displays good quality craftsmanship using local materials
