Row of 5 cottages. Dated 1898. Built for the Chester Cottage
Improvement Company. Stone-dressed brown brick with blue

lintels, those to Nos 2 and 3 inscribed "A.D : 1898"; a
stone-mullioned flush-quoined 3-light leaded casement to each
cottage; first floor band; stone quoins and mullions to leaded

HISTORICAL NOTE: at the turn of the C19/C20 the philanthropic
Chester Cottage Improvement Company sought to provide model
dwellings for working people, a task which the City Council
was not equipped to tackle until after 1918. With Nos 6-16
Priory Place (qv) and Nos 30, 32 and 34 Love Street (qv), this
is the best example of their work.
