History

Of uncertain origin, possibly late medieval, but drastically modernised in the 1850s and again in the mid/late C20 probably c1970. C18 to C19 features (now mostly replaced) but with indications of an earlier original structure, possibly contemporary with the C16 castle above. There is a chamfered stone doorway with pointed head of C16 style in eastern ground floor wall of No 4. The rear walls of the original structure remain but rear wings with slate roofs were added circa mid to later C19. These cottages were built originally by the Plymouth Estate (St. Fagans Castle) which has probably given them three major refurbishments, in the mid C18, in c1855 and in c1970 and they now have characteristics of all these periods.
