Historic England, 2018, 1-8 Forestry Houses, Bellever, Postbridge (Correspondence). SDV361145.

Group of mid-1950s houses built to house forestry workers. Rendered brick construction with slate roofs with end stack and central ridge stack. Two storey. Each has a single storey kitchen wing at the side and a central entrance porch at the front. Windows and doors appear to have been replaced with uPVC.
They are of strong local interest as distinctive and well-planned examples of post-war housing in a prominent location. They fall short of the high degree of special architectural interest required of houses of this date to merit listing. See report for further detail.
