History

The Tre-felin Saw Mill and the adjoining cottages were here by 1888 (OS 1:2500 map). The 4 pairs of cottages were built for the sawmill workers, at the expense of the Penrhyn Estate which owned the mill. It is said that the cottages have their backs to the road so that Lord Penrhyn could not see the washing hanging in their gardens, which are thus screened from public view by the cottages themselves.

Exterior

Has lost its end ridge stack.

Interior

Interior not inspected at time of Survey.

Reasons for Listing

Included as one cottage in a well-preserved sequence of 4 paired cottages built by the Penrhyn Estate for workers in its sawmill, which was established in the shadow of the Chester to Holyhead railway in the second half of the C19; an important example of industrial workers' housing in an essentially rural context.
