Site visited on 22nd February 1984. Terraces of mill workers cottages adjacent to Lower Buckfast Mill. Three rows of cottages are shown on 1955 map. There were probably originally four rows forming two blocks of back to backs. They were erected in the second half of 19th century to accommodate mill workers. Possibly called "New Buildings". Two rows were demolished in the late 1950s or early 1960s leaving only the western row fronting Buckfast Road standing. This is two storey stone rubble with brick dressings. It had fallen empty and was in poor condition by 1980 and there were proposals to demolish and redevelopment the site in 1983.
