Terrace of 4 houses (now 3), formerly the apprentice house for
Benyon and Bage's flax mill. c1800 with later modifications.
John Simpson, architect and builder. Brick with Welsh slate
roof. 3 storeys, wide 4-window range. Paired doors beneath
single pedimented hoods (one door now a window in right-hand
pair). 4-pane sash windows with cambered brick heads (blind
window spaces on ground and second storeys in left-hand unit).
Painted plaque in centre of elevation reads "Ann Hill". Hipped
roof to left, and 3-window-range return elevation, with wide
6-pane sashes, the central spaces blind. End wall and axial

they were used in all building work prior to 1805.
