fireplaces. Entrances through porches towards the rear of the crosswings.

arches with gables over and contain original doors with herringbone plank
patterns. All the gables have original wavey bargeboards.

complete pair of late C19 cottages and form a group with Nos 1-4 Crockhurst
Street Cottages (q.v.) opposite.
