Later 19th century with later alterations. Single storey, 9-bay range of cottages (formerly 4 cottages, see Notes), similar to neighbouring Nos 4 and 5. Stugged sandstone ashlar with droved ashlar dressings. Base course, chamfered arrises. Smithy and Joiner's workshop: single storey range to N, in similar style; of stugged ashlar, rubble to N elevation.
S ELEVATION: blank bay to centre with window to each of 3-bay group flanking, except middle bay of 3-bay group to right with boarded door and letterbox fanlight; middle bay of left 3-bay group formerly door opening, now partially blinded.

These cottages probably date from around the time that the working- horses stable was added to Blackadder Mount (see separate listing). There is a similar group of cottages to E. All were altered to form
3 cottages (in this case) from a 4 cottage range in 1952. Ruinous pigsties to N.
