13/180 No. 49 (Capstan Cottage)
Nos 50 and 51 (Mayfield Cottage)
and No 52

Row of four cottages. Probably C17, with considerable C19 and C20 modifications. Limestone
rubble, stone slate roofs at two levels (Nos 49 and 50 at lower level); 4 ridge stacks
to gables of Nos 51 and 52, but along ridge to Nos 49 and 50. From entrance (north)
side left-hand unit is 1½ storeys with 4 raking eaves dormers over 3 casements, that
to No 50 in steel, remainder wood with leading; plank door to No 49, and stable door
in lean-to extension to No 50. Far left is small single storey extension, reputed to
be part of earlier cottage. Right-hand unit is 2 storeys and attic, with scattered
fenestration, including 2-light in re-set hollow chamfer stone surround centre first
floor, and a similar single light to right; ground floor right is steel casement, and
a small raking dormer is inserted to No 51. Plank door, left to No 51, and C20 glazed
door set back deep to No 52. Right return gable with steel casements.

South fronts to churchyard has, to left section, 3 small gabled dormers over 2-
light steel casements, then 2-light and 3-light wood casements, over 2 steel casements,
a small casement set into stone set-back panel, centrally, and right, a larger cross-
mullioned stone casement with hollow-chamfer members. Right section has 4 small 2-light
eaves dormers over the 2-light and one 3-light casements. Windows generally leaded
and set to wood/lintels, but in No 52 most windows have been replaced with steel casement.
Interior of No 51 includes wide wood bressumer fire, with solid stone cheek one side
and moulded stone member to right, probably a re-used element, and rough beams and
roof timbers of early build. Other interiors not seen. A modest row of buildings, holding
an important place to the north edge of the churchyard, containing simple vernacular
elements; No 52, with inserted non-conforming steel casements is included primarily
for group value, and the floor levels of Nos 51 and 52 'interlocks' so as to make separ-
ation difficult. Part of the property is reputed at one time to have been almshouses.
