The cottages were probably built at various periods from the early-mid C19, with later alterations. Nos 5 and 6 were probably the first to be built, in the later C18.


Nos 5 and 6 are a pair at the E end of the row, set higher, and perhaps earlier in date. No 5 occupies a single bay, with the entrance on the right sharing the wide opening with No 6. Door is a stop chamfered frame. Pair of modern timber casement windows on ground and first floors. Blue brick stack.

Reasons for Listing

Included as a good group of traditional cottages in vernacular style of the early C19, in an important and conspicuous location by the bridgehead.
