Listing Text

SO 8610/8710
(east side)
6/88 Hillfort Cottage
Detached cottage. Possibly early C18, much modified C19. Large blocks, coursed
and squared limestone, stone slate roof. Two storeys and attic, 2 windows. At
ground floor a 2-light steel casement under hood, centrally, replacing former
doorway, and one 2-light chamfer mullion casement with rectangular leading under
hood; first floor has two 2-light casement gabled dormers. Stack, right,
rebuilt in concrete block. Right gable return has C20 single light casements at
ground and first floors; left return has a 2-light chamfer mullion with rectangular
leading and hood over similar but with wood lintel; lean-to with C20
door. Back has various lights. Although in detail this appears to be C19, the
steeply pitched roof and nature of the masonry suggests an earlier building.
