Grouped cottages in 7 one and a half storey in blocks of 2, 4 and 5 houses, varying in design through judicious use of irregular gables and dormers. The focal point of the composition is the large central gable of Nos 12 and 13. Tiled roofs with brick ridge stacks. Roughcast walls. Transom and mullion windows, some with glazing bars. Recessed, arched doorways. Later alterations and additions. Included as a seminal development concept.
