lower end beyond through passage to left (No 6). 2 storeys with
secondary outshuts and service wings to rear.

Row of 3 cottages. C17 (maybe earlier in parts), refurbished in the C19. Plastered local stone rubble, maybe with some cob; stone rubble stacks
with plastered brick chimneyshafts; slate roof, formerly thatch.
Plan: row of three 1-room plan cottages facing north. No 6 is the left
(east) end cottage, No 10 is in the centre and No 12 is the right(west)
end cottage. There is a gable-end stack heating No 6 and Nos 10 and 12
have an axial stack in the pantry wall between them serving back-to-back fireplaces. There is a passage through the building between Nos 6 and 10.
Since no internal inspection was available at the time of this survey it
is not possible to outline the historic development of this building in
detail. It maybe that it was built as a row of small cottages or that
the cottages were made in the C19 by subdividing a C17 house. 2 storeys
with secondary outshots and service wings to rear.
Exterior: overall irregular 5-window front of various late C19 and early
C20 sashes, some are horned 4-pane sashes and others are 10-pane (8/2)
sashes. Nos 10 and 12 have front doorways containing C20 doors and No 6
has a doorway off the passage (also containing a C20 door). The roof is
gable-ended.
Interior: was not available for inspection at the time of this survey
although some presumably C17 beams with neat chamfers were seen in the
ground floor rooms. Otherwise it seems that most of the joinery detail
is C19 and C20.
