History

A late C18 or early C19 pair of cottages, altered to (or occupied as) a farmhouse and noted in 1839 as a the farmhouse of a smallholding, part of the property of Catherine Davies, and occupied by Edward Evans with about 4 acres. The building subsequently appears to have reverted to cottages, and is noted on the 1886 map, and in R E Lloyd's memoirs of the late C19/early C20, as two dwellings. The building is now again a single dwelling. The left door opening at front has been converted to a window opening.

Exterior

A two-unit building of uncoursed local slate masonry, painted white at front. Slate roof with tile ridge and end-chimneys. Lean-to annexe with sheeted roof at each end.

The two upper windows are small-pane casements immediately beneath eaves, in openings aligned with the outer openings beneath. Boarded door and three pairs of casements below, one in a former door opening. Boarded door to each lean-to annexe.

Reasons for Listing

A pair of late vernacular cottages which have been converted to one house, but have retained their character.
