A terrace of 2 storey homes with 'topshops', designed to maintain the independence of the individual worker within the factory system. They were built as part of Cash's Model Factory in 1857, a scheme to give the Coventry weaver what he wanted - a properly-developed cottage factory system. However the scheme failed and by 1862 they had been converted in to one large factory.
