Statement of Interest

With Nos 9, 11, 13, 15 East Street, these cottages were built

as estate dwellings for Gordon Castle employees. The design

probably dates from circa 1840, was used over a period of

time on the estate and was somewhat old-fashioned by 1870-80.

This group of cottages does not appear on the 1st edition OS,

1870.
