A row of 3 estate cottages. Late C19. In rustic style, the most ornate
example of a number of estate cottages built by John Martineau Esq., of The
Lawn. Red brick to ground floor, exposed timber-framing with render to the
upper floor; plaintiles. 2 storeys; complex form. Internal and end chimney-
stacks with rounded shafts, moulded bases, and corbelled caps. Both end
cottages have large jettied cross-wings, each jetty with shaped joist ends and
ornate supporting brackets; carved bargeboards and ornate spike finials to-the
gables; a single storey open timber porch in the angle of the wing and main
range, and an oriel to the upper floor with 5-light casement window. Similar
casements, with a single bar to lights, to all the other windows in the row.
The middle cottage, double fronted, has a large 2-storey gabled porch
projecting from its centre front, with open timbering on the ground floor and
a room with a 5-light slightly coved window above; bargeboards and finial to
match the cross-wings. All 3 cottages have diagonal bracing in the apex of
the gables and Biblical texts carved on bressummers and tie-beams.
