An early C19 labourer's cottage shown on the 1833 OS and the 1840 Tithe map. A jamb on the R side of the entrance is inscribed '1845 TH'. The initials possibly refer to a descendant of Henry Hamer, who lived there in 1840. The cottage became a smallholding in the later C19 when a cow house was added, which is shown on the 1889 OS.


A 1½-storey cottage of rubble stone with slate roof and square stone stack to the L. Openings have wooden lintels. The boarded door to the L has a date-inscribed jamb. Further R are two 2-light windows, but with the glazing missing. The R gable end has a similar 2-light attic window and a small pantry window lower R.

A corrugated iron roof links the house with the cow house, covering a narrow passage between the two. The cow house is rubble stone with slate roof (partly missing at the rear). The front has 2 boarded doors and a weatherboarded loft, with shuttered opening on the R side (only partially fixed at the time of inspection). The L gable end has a boarded loft door under a brick segmental head. The rear has 2 tiers of ventilation strips.


The 3-bay cow house roof has tie beams with raking struts.
