Statement of Interest

2 and 3 Edington Mill Cottages are good examples of 19th century mill workers housing, built for employees at the nearby Edington Mill (see separate listing). Originally four cottages, conversion to two properties in 2002 resulted in the rubble infill of entrances to the left return of the gabled porches. Externally, the cottages largely retain their original form, profile and character. Adjacent to the west is the detached and more decorative Edington Mill House Cottage (see separate listing) which was presumably built to house a senior mill worker. Together the cottages provide good group interest.
