These are the only cottages in village to maintain original separate upper and lower flat arrangement, with upper dwelling (10 Main Street) accessed via traditional forestair. It is situated in the middle of a 2-storey row of 18th century cottages formerly known as Davidson's Buildings. This lane or close now known as Charlie Black's Close was at one time known as Sylvester's Close, which led off the King's Way, the old road running along West Bay.
