Location: Situated above and approximately 150m NE of the crossroads in Rhandirmwyn village centre.
Traditional County: Carmarthenshire
Part of a terrace of mid C19 houses presumably built for workers at the Rhandirmwyn lead-mine, on land owned by Lord Cawdor. There is some building marked on the site on the 1841 Tithe map, but not apparently this row. A map of 1858 shows a long single storey terrace marked 'the miners lodging houses'; perhaps the present terrace superceded this. There were originally eight houses, 2 larger each end and 4 smaller in the middle, now 6 as the middle ones have been joined as two pairs. The numbering now appears to be that No 3 includes the third and fourth, No 5 the fifth and sixth houses. No 1 was formerly the Miner's Arms inn.
Terrace of eight houses, now six. Rubble stone generally with slate roofs and seven corniced stone stacks. Two storeys, 20-window range, two double-fronted houses each end, four single-window houses in centre (these 4 now 2, numbered Nos 3 and 5). Small windows with stone voussoirs and stone sills, similar stone voussoirs to doors. Outshut rears. The original windows were probably small-paned sashes and original doors were boarded, most windows now horned 4-pane sashes of c1900. Cobbled path in front.
Formerly two mirrored cottages: window, door, door, window. 4-pane horned sashes and plank door.
Included, despite the alteration of No 7, as part of a rare example in rural Carmarthenshire of an industrial workers' terrace.
