PLAN: U-plan with 2 forward outer gabled bays. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys; 1:3:1 fenestration. The gabled ranges of Nos 109 to the left and 115 to the right have loopholes to the apexes, flat arches over 2-light leaded casement windows with Tudor arch and sunk spandrels to each light. Those to ground floor are taller with crenellated lintels. Entrances are in the returns. The central houses have single-light windows similar to first-floor outer ones flanking a hoodmould and double plank doors below a blind window with inscription. INTERIOR: not inspected. SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: attached to outer corners are rubblestone walls approx 1m high and 1m long and paired gabled gate piers with roll-moulded ridges and recessed triangular panels to front. HISTORY: first built in 1640 in Torquay Road endowed by Lady Lucy Reynell wife of the owner of Forde House, Torquay Road, (qv) who intended them to accommodate the widows, "the relicts of preaching ministers, left poor, without a house of their own". The original building was demolished in 1790 and rebuilt in East Street nearer to the town centre. (Jones R: A Book of Newton Abbot: Callington 1979: 121 AND 122).
