6/156 Nos 53 and 55 -


Pair of cottages. Probably late C18 - early C19 with C20 rear extensions. Plastered granite stone rubble; granite stacks with granite ashlar chimney shafts; slate roof with pierced crested ridge tiles (probably thatch originally). Plan: pair of contemporary 1-room plan cottages with a passageway between, and facing east onto the street. No 53 is that to the right (north) and it has an axial stack backing onto the passage. No 55, on the left, has a stack in the end wall. Both originally had winder stairs rising alongside the stacks, and their doors led off the passage. Both have C20 extensions to rear. No 55 has the extra chamber over the passage. 2 storeys. Exterior: overall symmetrical 3-window front of C20 casements with glazing bars. Central passageway has a solid timber frame containing a C20 plank door and there is a similar frame at the rear end. Roof butts those of the adjoining properties each side. Interior: each ground floor room has a plain soffit-chamfered axial beam and both fireplaces are blocked by C20 grates. Roof is inaccessible although the feet of the principals show. Their scantling is large enough to suggest that the A-frame trusses are original. It is unusual for a pair of such small cottages to survive so complete. Furthermore they form part of a group of listed buildings along the west side of New Street.
