Ball Cottage is shown on the Tithe Map for Winsford. It is within land parcel 614, which the accompanying Apportionment describes as "Cottage and Garden", situated in an area known as Larcombe Foot. The property is owned by Sir Thomas Dyke Acland and occupied by John Gunter.  The house is depicted and labelled as "Ball Cottage" on both the 1st and 2nd Edition Ordnance Survey maps and on present day MasterMap data. [2-4] At the northern end of the village, Ball Cottage outwardly of late 18th century or early 19th century date but possibly of earlier origin, is an unspoiled cottage, with plank doors and timber casement windows. Built on a spur of underlying rock with end gable and projecting stack facing the highway, it fully retains original character of colour-washed stone rubble, and slate roofs including the added lean-to rear extension.  An historic photograph of the cottage is held by the Winsford Archive.
