roof with plain ridge. Lateral stone rubble stack with brick shaft to left side.
Compact 1½ room plan cottage built at right angles to the street with direct entry to
front end into principal heated room with small scullery at rear to right of winder
staircase. C20 single storey kitchen extension with lean-to roof, but incorporating
cob wall to rear probably converted from outbuilding extends at right angles towards
rear of left side.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Single 3 light casement 2 panes per light on each floor to
front end, the ground floor window to left of C20 door.
Interior: raised and fielded dado panelling to rear wall of front room. Original

Roof: not accessible but feet of slender principals and hipped ends visible
