Arscotts and Arscotts Cottage


Pair of houses. Early C19 with later C19 additions. Plastered walls. Gable ended

Arscotts Cottage has an asymmetrical 2-window front of identical windows and
doorhood to their right with 6-panel door, now part-glazed. Between the 2 houses

unusual asymmetrical arrangement and situated in a very prominent position in the
