the flanking cottages, each with a room either side of its own axial stack and
probably with front doors on the end of the range. Overall 8 window front of C19
and C20 timber casements 3- and 2-light casements, 3 panes per light. Inserted
central doorway (to No. 3) as No. 4 (right side) now has 3 window front and No. 2
(left of centre) one room front. Door to No. 1 (left end) now on side. Despite
alterations the range remains an attractive row of thatched cottages.
