Cottage 2. The eastern of two adjoining cottages to the north-east of Charlestown Barton. A two-storey single room cottage of roughly coursed stone rubble with clay and lime mortar, but with cob used at first floor level. Appears to be an addition to cottage to the west. Obvious areas of rebuild or extension. Entry through later porch. Stack, possibly later insertion, in right-hand gable with later bread oven. Crude beams used for first floor. Remains of roof truss with lapped and pegged apex, ridge pole and two pairs of trenched purlins, pegged rafters. Spiked surface-mounted collar.
It is shown as an agricultural building on the Tithe Map and was probably converted to a domestic dwelling in the later 19th century.
