Late 19th century historic map shows these buildings; appears to be two dwellings at this time. The northern part appears to show one larger dwelling with rear outshot. Southern building is a basic rectangle shaped dwelling.

Ordnance Survey, 2017, MasterMap (Cartographic). SDV359962.

Three middle cottages of this terrace depicted on the modern mapping. Northern two are fairly small and appear to show the larger dwelling depicted on the late 19th century historic map has been subdivided, into two much smaller cottages at some point in the modern period. The southern one is slightly larger, although may also have been altered.
