    After reading another report on this place (thanks Adam X) I was intrigued about it. I live 2 villages down from where these cottages are located and have never heard about them. So what better way of working off Christmas dinner, I dusted off the old push bike and took a trundle down with the brother.

    We were not disappointed, these cottages are beautiful, we spent about an hour and a half exploring the ground floors of the ones that were accessible until hunger got the better of us and we had to retreat back home for some left over turkey. A second visit is right around the corner so we can see what the upstairs has to offer us.

    A little bit of history to these cottages,

    Terrace of four cottages. Early C19 with small later C19 rear wings. Red brick in Flemish bond with pantile roofs, fish-scale slate to rear wings. Brick ridge and rear wing stacks. 2 storeys. 8-window range at first floor of 2-light casements. Casements and plank doors to ground floor under brick segmental arches. The casements are mainly of two lights, some set lower to accommodate the stairs and light the kitchen/larder. Rear wings have small casements and plank doors.
    INTERIOR. The interiors are little altered and have a plan of sitting room, kitchen/larder with landing bedroom and bedroom above with the small later wing added. Features include small open and cast-iron fireplaces, brick floors, plank doors, straight flight stairs with simple top balustrades, and curving tiebeams.
    Elm Row is an unusual survival, a little-altered early C19 terrace of farmworkers cottages, set isolated in the countryside but near to the land where the tenants worked. The continued existence of so many of the interior features is remarkable.
