Statement of Interest

Woodstock Street is named after Viscount Woodstock, the 1st Earl of Portland. This cottage was the first built in Woodstock Street. It stands on an incline and is reached by a flight of steps. The W boundary wall is rubble stepped to follow the line of the hill. The lower wings with doors led to the rear of the property. The cottage, although small, has a good level of detail, especially in the piers and window surround This cottage has a steeply pitched roof with older style attic dormers; the slightly later 2 paired cottages to the right have more modern alterations to the dormers, which alter the original character of the building. Housing in the area expanded after 1880 when many of the neighbouring streets and roads were constructed. Woodstock Cottage is listed as a good example of later 19th century cottage.
