History

Not shown on the 1888 Ordnance Survey 25" map of the area, the cottages were probably built in the 1890s as part of continuing improvements on the Penrhyn Estate at this time.

Interior

Interior not inspected at time of Survey.

Reasons for Listing

Included as essentially unaltered late Victorian workers' housing forming a significant and distinctive component within the important C19 planned Estate village of Llandygai. The style of the cottages is typical of much of the estate's late C19 phase of workers' housing, that is of symmetrical composition, bold in its detailing and making good use, particularly in the slate hanging, of the most abundant and distinctive local material.
