INTERIOR of No.18: the ground floor has an open fire to the

surround; the original, now exposed rubblestone rear wall
separates the rear left wing, both rooms have chamfered
crossbeams and the rear wing now has exposed rafters. The roof
to the front has trenched purlins, the roof to the rear wing
has threaded purlins and ridge with rafters resting on the
ridge. No.20 not inspected but likely to be of interest.
HISTORICAL NOTE: these are said to have been built as
millworkers' cottages, the attics originally interlinked where
wool was dried. These cottages occupy a prominent position
close to the Church of St Mary (qv).
