Early C19. The terrace carries a stone above the entry marked with the letters D E J and the date 1832, though Cartrefle may be a little earlier. many of the windows have a stylistic feature (diagonally crossed bars in the upper parts of the lights) found locally from about 1815. The initials appear to link these cottages with Victoria Terrace nearby.


This double-fronted cottage has been rendered and its joinery replaced in upvc units of unsympathetic design, but the changes have not altered the opening sizes and consequently the cottage, notwithstanding its loss of character, still contributes to the group value.

Reasons for Listing
