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.
No 6 is a pair with No 5 at the E end of the row, set slightly higher and perhaps somewhat earlier in date. No 6 ocupies two bays, with the entrance on the left sharing the wide opening with No 5. Boarded door in a stop-chamfered frame. 2-light paned timber window to the ground floor, and a similar but shorter window to the first floor, with a similar window above the entrance. Gable end blue-brick stack. the gable end has smooth-rendered bands painted black simulating timber-framing.
Included as a good group of traditional cottages in vernacular style of the early C19, in an important and conspicuous location by the bridgehead.
