Late c17 but containing earlier fabric, enlarged and remodelled in C18, altered in late C19; No.5 unoccupied and renovation in progress at time of inspection (April 1992.). Formerly cruck-framed, but now coursed sandstone rubble (with quoins to No.5), Welsh slate roof (stone slate to single-storey extension), late c19 brick chimneys. Irregular plan on east-west axis, the eastern half (No.5) probably formerly single-depth 2-unit end-baffle-entry plan remodelled as double-depth by additions to rear, with small extension to east end in C18; and the western half (No.4) set back and in 2 portions, that adjoining No.5 single-depth and that to the left projecting slightly to the front and extended to the rear under a carried-down roof, with a small outshut to this. Two storeys with single-storey extension, 2+2:1 windows. No.4 has a lean-to porch attached to the gable wall of No.5: mullioned windows of 4 and 4 lights at ground floor, 4 and 3 lights ahove, all with chamfered flush mullions, the 4-light windows lacking one mullion and that to the left at 1st floor with a small light inserted immediately to its right; and in the gable wall two 2-light windows on each floor and a blocked 2-light window between those at ground floor. Chimney behind ridge at junction. No.5 to the right, which has graduated coursed rubble up to 1st floor sill-level and larger rubble above (raised or rebuilt?) has an added gabled porch offset left of centre, a 4-light chamfered flush mullion window to the left (lacking the centre mullion) and a 5-light double-chamfered mullion window to the right (lacking 2 central mullions) both with cavetto-moulded hoodmoulds; and at 1st floor a former 3-1ight mullioned window to the left altered as a 2-light casement and a former 4-light window to the right altered as a pair of 2-1ight casements. Gable wall has blocked doorway with triangular stone lintel (now covered by extension). Ridge chimney and gable chimney. Set back single-cell single-storey extension (perhaps formerly a loomshop) has blocked doorways at junction in both front and rear walls, chamfered flush mullion windows of 3 lights at the front and 2 at rear, and a large inserted doorway in gable wall. Rear: No.4 has small outshut under carried down roof, altered doorway next to this and various small casement windows with wooden lintels and altered glazing; No.5 recently rebuilt.
