17th century with later alterations. Single storey, 3-bay rectangular-plan cottage with adjoining L-plan late 20th century extension to E and S. Rendered, painted stone margins.
N (PRINCIPAL) ELEVATION: symmetrical arrangement. Raised threshold to central door, flanking later 19th century bipartite windows close to eaves. Setback extension to left, centred window.
E ELEVATION: gable wall of cottage with raggles of former building to right, modern extension to left.

Modern timber and glazed door. Timber sash and case bipartite windows, upper 4-pane, lower plate glass. Modern fenestration to rear. 2 bipartite rooflights to S. Steeply pitched roof, modern interlocking tiles, raised skew to E, rendered, corniced gable apex stack to E, circular can.
NOTES: Although No 2 has been greatly altered it still retains features of a typical single storey vernacular cottage of the area. The stack shows evidence of a thackstane and the roof is steeply pitched indicating that at one time the cottage was thatched. The wall to the principal elevation is noticeably thicker at the bottom due to large rubble stones used in the construction of the foundations. On the E gable there are the raggles of a former building with a very steep roof pitch indicating that the row of cottages continued, the 1856 Ordnance Survey map shows 1 or 2 further buildings extending down the street.
