This cottage dates to at least the early-mid 19th century, based on cartographic evidence. Depicted on the Tithe Map as cottages, it appears to have served as at least two separate dwellings throughout the 19th and part of the 20th century. By the later 20th century it appears to have been combined into a single dwelling.
