SY6873 CHISWELL, Chesil
969-1/3/20 (West side)
Dolphin and Neptune with attached
rear boundary wall


Two cottages, probably formerly one property. Late C18 or
early C19. Rendered, slate roof. A symmetrical front to the
street, with double-depth plan, including a smaller parallel
back range which has become a separate property (Dolphin). Two
storeys and attic, 2-windowed. 4-pane sashes with central C19
flush 4-panel part-glazed door. Raised verges, rendered
stacks. Right return has plain gable to Neptune, then lower
plain gable to Dolphin, but with C20 door and small 4-pane
sash at ground floor. Back has some 4-pane sashes, and two one
storey lean-to wings, all enclosed by high stone boundary
wall. Central rendered ridge stack to Dolphin. This property,
now rather isolated, may be one of the survivals from the
great storm of 1824 which caused extensive damage in the
low-set area.
