slate roof with deep eaves carried on paired eaves brackets; stacks with rendered
Plan: Double depth plan, 2 rooms wide with a central entrance into a stair hall, rear

suggest a pre C19 house, presumably thoroughly remodelled in 1807.

the windows. Central entrance with an early C19 recessed panelled door with
fanlight, panelled reveals and a rounded outer arch. Datestone of 1807 with the
initials E.D. above the front door. Complete set of early C19 small pane timber sash
windows, those to the right with margin panes. The right return (No. 2) has a
recessed front door with an overlight, flanked by small-pane timber windows. The
rear and side elevations have a mixture of timber sashes and casements, mostly C19.
Interior: No. 1 inspected. Early C19 joinery survives including shutters, panelled
doors, cornices, 2 marble chimney-pieces and a good stair with stick balusters in the
first flight and a ramped handrail, 2 first floor flights have turned balusters. The
stair is lit by a lantern.
