The description shall be amended to read:

Pair of cottages. Mid/late C17 with later additions. Timber framing
and rendered brick with slate roof. 2 storeys, 1 bay each with C20 added
bay to south gable of Rookery Cottage. Stone plinth, small framing three
panels in height with angle braces. Boarded doors under gabled hoods,
the door to Swan Cottage being a C20 replacement. Three-light ground
floor windows but the two Rookery Cottage windows are C20 bows. First
floor windows are 2-light gabled half dormers. The bay added to Rookery
Cottage is of rendered brickwork. A stucco rendered brick cottage with
slate roof and C20 door and windows has been built against the north
gable of Swan Cottage, this is of no special interest.
