A continuous dripmould, broken by the ground-floor left window, is carried across Nos. 2 and 4. Stone gutter brackets, large corniced stack left. The C17 house was possibly divided into separate cottages in the later C18 to accommodate mining families when the Duke of Devonshire began to develop the lead mines on Yarnbury after 1750. Being visible fron the main street No. 2 was of more importance and the alterations then included raising the roof and resetting a C17 window to light the added storey. Nos. 4 and 6 remained more humble buildings, being refenestrated in the mid C19, a period of rapid expansion in the lead industry.
