Row of cottages. Basically probably mid - later C17 but altered to varying
degrees at various times. Plastered rubble walls. Gabled thatch roofs apart from a slate roof to No. 6. 10 brick stacks, some on rubble bases.
Plan: cottages probably each originated with 2-room plan, one larger and heated.
Evidence of newel stairs in some and No. 10 has a large stair projection on its
front wall. Some subdivision and internal alteration has taken place and No. 6
was a C19 insert into a space between the adjoining cottages.
Exterior: 2 storeys, although some of the road frontages appear single storey.
Long irregular and very picturesque row of mainly single-fronted cottages.
Windows are mainly C19 or early C20 small-paned casements of 1, 2 and 3-lights
with some sliding sashes. 1st floor windows generally set in eyebrows in the
thatch, except for No. 6 which has had its eaves raised and early C19 16-pane
sashes introduced with a contemporary hood over its door. A mixture of plank and
panelled doors. No. 10 to the right has a semicircular stair projection on its
front well.
Interior: Nos. 4 & 5 seen, both have stone newel staircases. No. 4 has small
fireplace in right-hand room with slate slab lintel and Lydstone range. No. 5 has roughly chamfered cross beams with run-out stops. Coffin-hatch in ceiling of right-hand ground floor room. Probably original fairly substantial straight
principal rafters.
