History

Mid-late C19; a small cottage, probably for a shepherd, with attached lofted stable.

Exterior

One-unit 2-storey cottage of rubble stone under a slate roof, with red brick stack to L. Adjoining to L but separated by a butt joint, is the stable, also of rubble stone and under the same slate roof. The cottage has a part-lit boarded door to the R, under a timber lintel. Two-light casement window with quarries under a timber lintel to its L, with similar window aligned above. N gable end formerly had a lean-to, now an open canopy. Stable has part-lit boarded door to L under a segmental brick head; some brick repairs to jambs. Two-light small-pane casement window to its R, also under a segmental brick head, the glazing probably inserted later. Corrugated iron sheeting to S gable end, detail not seen. Rear not seen.

Interior

No access to interior at time of inspection.

Reasons for Listing

Listed as an unusual survival of a small upland cottage with stable, which was probably associated with sheep farming in the C19.
