Full Description

The georectified tithe map is not clear enough to show whether the cottages were extant at this point in time. [1] The cottages and their outbuilding are shown on the 1st and 2nd Edition Ordnance Survey maps in their present plan form. [2-4] The cottages were visited in 1996. They were described as a house with 19th Century mullioned windows, plain and long. It was suggested the building may have an earlier core. [5]
