SP3929 (East side)
10/61 Nos.8 to 11 (consecutive)
27/08/56 (Formerly listed as Cottages
Nos.8, 9, 10 and 11)
Row of 4 small houses and cottages, now partly ruinous. Partly C17, altered and
extended early C18, and probably partly re-modelled early C19. Coursed squared
marlstone with some ashlar dressings; thatched roofs with limestone-ashlar
stacks. One- and 2-unit plans. 2 storeys and 2 storeys plus attic. No.11 to
left, the tallest, has a 2-window front with 3-light C17 stone-mullioned window
with labels at ground floor, and tall wooden cross windows above in early C18
walling. All have leaded glazing. Small attic window in left gable. Roof has C19
flanking stacks and an inset dormer to rear. Rear wing has casements. Main
entrance is within the structure of No.10, to right, and adjacent to No.10's
doorway; both have chamfered segmental arches below possibly-inserted labels.
Remains of ground-floor windows survive in the ruins of Nos.10 and 9, and there
is a pair of similar windows in the front of No.8, all with 3-light leaded
casements in chamfered stone surrounds below labels, and probably early Cl9. At
first floor only one window, a 2-light leaded casement, survives above the
entrance to No.10. Gable walls stand to full height and retain C19 stacks, all
with plinths and moulded caps. No.10 still retains some roof timbers and part of
its first floor. Interiors not inspected.
