Record Details

NHER Number:14005
Type of record:Monument
Name:Gable End, formerly Fir Cottage


This cottage dates to the early 17th century. It has a shaped gable to the south made from brick with a moulded string course at the base. The cottage retains a thatched roof but other walls (of brick) may have been rebuilt, and it is possible that it is the remnant of a larger building that was reduced in the 19th century. Nevertheless it survives in a very good condition.
