History

Built c1850 as part of Edward Douglas-Pennant's considerable efforts to improve the Penrhyn Estate, to which he had succeeded in 1840. Colonel Douglas-Pennant first gave notice to his tenants of his intention to improve through his agent, James Wyatt's address "To the Farming Tenantry of the Penrhyn Estate", printed in 1843.

Exterior

Single-storey, 2-room plan with loft, aligned roughly north-west to south-east. Roughly coursed rubblestone with quoins; slate roof with slate coping. 4-paned sash windows with slate cills on either side of slightly offset boarded door with large glazed panel under open timber gabled porch; C20 rooflight directly below ridge to right; integral end stacks with brick shafts, right mainly rendered. Rubblestone lean-to on left has top-hung window to front. Catslide outshut at rear.

Interior

Interior not accessible at time of Survey.

Reasons for Listing

Included as an essentially unaltered mid-C19 estate cottage of the simple 'vernacular revival' style particularly favoured by the Penrhyn Estate for its workers in the decades immediately after c1850.
