Terrace of four almshouses, now divided into flats. Rebuilt 1833. Snecked local red stone, brick chimney stacks, slate roofs and cast-iron rain water goods. Repartitioned but each cottage must have originally been double-depth, one room wide with an axial stack: a mirror plan to its neighbour.

Two stone tablets: one (to the left), reads "BLAGDONS CHARITY DESTROYED BY FIRE AND REBUILT ANNO DOMINI 1833" and the right one names the trustees.
Interior not inspected but some original fittings may have been retained.
