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.


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 with C19 doors share a stone canopy. Windows have hoodmoulds, those at ground floor badly eroded, those at upper level restored. Left hand return has later porch. Right hand return has paired entrances under shared stone canopy, that to the right now a window.


Some two unit cottages retain basic plan form and some have original stairs and blocked corner fireplaces. No 15 retains original plan form and many contemporary features including plank doors with strap hinges to most rooms and similar doors to the staircase. There is a corner fireplace in the front room with simple surround. Attic has an original cast-iron skylight.
