Cottage. Mid - late C19 with later additions and alterations. Red brick,
rendered. Pantile roof. Plan: 3-room southern section with adjoining
2-room north section, each with a single entrance to east front; rear
outshut to northern section. Single-storey 3-window southern section to
left with lower single-storey 2-window section to right. Left section has
C20 enclosed timber porch flanked by 4-pane sliding sash to left, 4-pane
casement and 12-pane sliding sash to right; ridge stack to right, end stack
to left. Section to right has board door with two 12-pane sliding sashes to
right, central ridge stack. Parts of Epworth Turbary (commons where peat
turf was formerly collected) were divided in the late C18-C19 into small
plots (usually 1 acre) and let for a low rent, creating a distinct
settlement pattern of intensively farmed smallholdings with very small
cottages, few of which survive in anything like their original form. A
similar process occurred with the turbaries in Haxey (qv), Belton and Crowle
parishes. One of the least altered examples of the small turbary farmhouses
still remaining. Included for historical interest.
