One of the small group of cottages of which Glasserton village is comprised, Kettle Cottage was formerly named Smithy Row. The same unusual glazing pattern, probably dating from post 1850, occurs at the neighbouring cottage to E, the Posting House (listed separately). Various fetaures link the disparate cottages, and indicate that there was perhaps some estate involvement to overhaul them in the mid to later 19th century. Former Item No 6.
