Shown on the 1840 Tithe Map, the cottage is likely to have been built as a smallholder's cottage in the early C19 and was probably associated with the nearby mill which, now ruinous, has not been included on this list.


Single storey, limewashed irregularly coursed rubblestone; graded slate roof with coped verges and integral end stacks with slate drips. Road (east) elevation is the rear with C19 casements to left and right, both with slate cills; entrance elevation to west and probably with window on either side of offset doorway but not accessible at time of Survey.


Inspection of interior not possible at time of Survey but the presence of windows to the back wall suggests that the cottage may be divided into more than 2 rooms.

Reasons for Listing

Included as a largely unaltered smallholder's cottage set within its own small field system, a significant building type, which forms part of the region's distinctive upland settlement pattern.
