History

The two cottages are dated 1839 and it is likely that the walls were constructed at the same time, to define the garden and allotment areas for the keepers' accommodation.

Exterior

Coursed and squared rubble walling with raking copings marks out enclosures to front and rear of the cottages. On the seaward side, facing towards Puffin Island, the wall is embattled, and forms two low bastion towers.

Reasons for Listing

Group value with the cottages, the enclosure walls represent an important part of the whole group, since the allotments which accompanied the keepers' accomodation were a standard, and highly regarded provision. The bastion towers and embattling to the wall on the seaward side are of particular interest.
