Row of 4 cottages. Late C19. Flemish bond red brick with cream-coloured
bricks used on the corners, doorways, windows and extensively on the
chimneyshafts for decorative effect; brick stacks and large staggered

end and the middle cottages (Nos 2 and 3) have doorways towards the centre,

back fireplaces.

Cottages are 2 storeys with small single storey bakehouse each end (both
connected to end cottages in the C20).

Exterior: Symmetrical 1:2:1-window of late C19 casements with glazing bars,
