Description
Terrace of six three-bay single-storey former estate workers' houses, built c.1830, now privately owned. Pitched slate roofs with brick or rendered chimneystacks. Stone and rendered walls. Square-headed openings with stone sills, and some timber casement windows. Square-headed openings, some with timber battened doors. Stone wall to east.

Appraisal

This terrace of houses are part of a group with the adjacent terrace and pair of houses, which were built in the first half of the nineteenth century to house estate workers. These houses are of apparent architectural design and are laid out in a formal plan, to form an enclosed group. The survival of many original features and materials enhance this picturesque group. The setting is enhanced by the well maintained wall to the east.
