No.5 continued to the right has one similar tripartite sash on each floor, a doorway in the angle with the wing, one window on each floor of the re-entrant of this and one 2-light sashed window on each floor of the gable. Shallow-pitched roofs with oversailing eaves and verges; gable chimney at left end and ridge chimneys to both ranges. INTERIOR not inspected. SUBSIDIARY FEATURE: the attached boundary wall to the front, of coursed gritstone blocks with rounded coping, is approximately 1.5m high, ramped up at the left end, and has a gateway aligned with the front door of each cottage, each with plain monolithic piers which have rounded tops; and to left of the ramp a larger but similar gateway; to the left of which the wall continues.
