History

One of four blocks of estate cottages on Park Street probably built c1840. Each block originally consisted of two 1-up 1-down units reached from the side, two 2-up 2-down units reached from a pair of doors in the street elevation, and a further pair of 1-up 1-down units reached from the other side. All rooms had corner fireplaces and the units shared flues leading to large octagonal chimneys. Neighbouring 1-up 1-down units have now been altered to form one dwelling and the blocks all have later extensions to the rear.

Exterior

Symmetrical elevation, 2-storey 4 windows. Roughly coursed and squared sandstone rubble with dressed stone quoins, hipped slate roof with two octagonal stone chimneys. Paired central entrances share a stone canopy, altered doors. Windows have hoodmoulds, those at ground floor badly eroded, those at upper level restored. Left hand return has later porch, formerly paired entrances. Right hand return has paired entrances under shared stone canopy, that to left now awindow.

Interior

Generally the two unit cottages retain basic plan form, some original stairs and blocked fireplaces.
