Dr David Rowe B.A.(Arch), B Arch (Hons.1) PLO (Arch), M.ICOMOS, Heritage Consultant "it is a quintessential miner's cottage that could have been built between the 1860s and 1900. However, to me, the chimney is suggestive of c.1890s construction. I note from the Parish Plan that the first sale of the land was 1896 (see below), which might suggest that the dwelling was built at that time (being quite late for a timber shingled roof), or possibly that the dwelling was relocated to the site from elsewhere (the dwelling having been built from the 1860s-1880s)
