Nos 1 to 5 (consecutive)
with front boundary wall
and steps


Row of cottages. C17, C18, C19. Rendered on cob or rubble, roofs slate or
thatch. All two storeys. No 1 (Old Stack) is 2-windowed, all small 2-light
glazing-bar casements; off centre left is a deep-set glazed door on 5 stone
steps, and immediately to its right a large external eaves stack. Small square
stack at left gable. Slated roof. No 2 is 2-windowed, small 2-light glazing-
bar casements; C20 door off-centre left, slate roof, brick stack to right. Two
retains a complete C19 roof structure under a later raising, also has a cased
Barlow rail used as spine beam in the lower room. No 3 is a narrow 2-window
front, 2-light glazing-bar casements, except ground floor left, a single light.

Rendered stepped stack, raised in brick, right. No 4 is wide-front 2-windowed,
2-light glazing-bar casements; C20 plank door under C20 thatched hood off-centre

2-windowed, but probably built in two stages; left half is thatched and right
half slated. Two-light glazing-bar casements to central C20 plank door and
thatched hood. Large stack, left. Backs of row mainly blank, but No 3 has
gabled slate hung extension, and there are one 2-light and a single light case-
ments. The Kingston History Society's booklet 'Kingston, a South Hames Village
(1980) has photographs of 1925 showing that little has changed since then except
for the thatched hoods and some new doors and replacement casements. The low
rubble boundary wall across all the frontages, with steps, is included.
