History

End house in row of six, probably mid C19, remodelled c1913 by J Coates Carter for Dom Aelred Carlyle. Two more cottages at the W, with lower roofs, seen in early photographs, were demolished after the others had been remodelled. Peter Anson shows the original window paintwork as green. Cobbled path in front and walled strip gardens the other side with rubble stone low walls, formerly whitewashed. Old photographs show 2 pairs of circular chimneys on outshuts to rear of Nos 1-4, and the small windows on the facade of Nos 5-6 not present. Restored 1998 with concrete imitation clay tiles and fascia boards instead of gutter brackets.
