VII.—Nos. 72 and 74 QUEEN STREET

These two cottages are an important survival of the earlier buildings of Queen Street. They formed almost certainly at one time a single house, and date from a period not later than the middle of the 17th century. The back or western front is the most interesting part of the building, as here can be seen the original staircase projection, carried higher than the main eaves, and finished with an independent hipped roof. The effect of this characteristic arrangement is somewhat lessened to-day by two later additions built on each side of the central projection, and roofed with pantiles. The brickwork and tiles of the older portions are of a beautiful colour, and the whole building makes a striking picture.

Condition of repair.

The cottages are in very fair repair.
