North west aspect. Pair of houses, formerly estate cottages. Built of coursed squared stone with ashlar dressings and steep pitched slate roof. Large gable, ridge, and external side wall chimney stacks, each with square coped double flues. Tudor Revival style. Plinth, coped gables. Windows are mainly C19 casements, with stone surrounds and mullions. Crowstepped facing gable with a stepped-head 3-light window with label mould. Above it a datestone 1828. On either side, a Tudor arched gateway with moulded coping. This pair of arches may have suggested to Pevsner that the building was intended as a schoolhouse, but there is no bellcote. Set across the return angle is a staircase window. One of several estate buildings for John, first Earl Brownlow, c1820-1830. (Photo Jun 2014).
