Built as a range of single-depth Cottages; overall an L-shaped plan; no 2 (Kentismoor Cottage) was possibly the first to be built (2-room cottage, or more likely, 2 single-roomed cottages, with external cob end stacks with ovens), with no 1 (originally 2 or more cottages) forming the longer range to the rear, and now heated by one axial stack; this range is also single-depth and comprises 3 rooms and a C19 or C20 lean to at the end. 2 storeys. Exterior Front: (north) 5 window range; all first floor windows are 2-light casements under eyebrow eaves; 4 ground floor windows and 2 doors. No. 2 (Kentismoor Cottage) faces west, 4 window range, first floor windows 2 light casements, lintels at eaves level; 3 windows and roughly central door to ground floor.
