Foundry Cottage was built in the early 17th century at the east end of the Devonshire Inn against the north wall of the grist mill, blocking a window of the latter. It was probably built as a two-up, two-down cottage with a cloam oven in the ground floor fireplace. In the 18th or 19th century a doorway was cut into the west room from the street and the stairs were moved to the rear. The west doorway was blocked in the late 19th century and a stack added to the Inn chimney. In the mid 20th century the roof was raised and the walls were built up with brick. The thatch was replaced with asbestos slates and the internal divisions and stairs were also replaced. The cottage was acquired by the National Trust in 1995 and renovated in 2005.
