PORTLAND

SY6873 ARTIST ROW, Fortuneswell
969-1/3/86 (North West side)
No.8
Bow Cottage, with boundary wall

II

Small house at lower end of row. Early to mid C19. Portland
ashlar in small sizes, large flush quoins, asbestos-cement
slate roof. Two storeys and attic, 1-windowed. All 4-pane
sashes, including raked half-dormer; C20 door, left. Ground
and first-floor openings have good flush voussoirs. Brick
stack to right, slightly raised coping left; on plain rendered
return remains of flues from demolished adjoining property. To
right across frontage a low wall in large stone block to high
flat saddle coping returns to front of house; to left a worn
stone step and, set back, a large rectangular pier. Modest,
but better retained than most houses in this street and
representative of their artisan origins.
