These simple cottages are inspired by the homes of labourers who worked in the bobbin mill and mineral mines around the village of Caldbeck in Cumberland.  They have a single living room and an upstairs bedroom partially within the loft space.  A steep ladder stair connects the two levels.

The corner shop was formerly a cottage in the same style, the ground floor has now been converted into a shop, while upstairs is used for living quarters.  Accordingly, the downstairs fireplace has been removed to upstairs.  A partition wall has been erected at the back of the shop to provide privacy where the ladder stair rises to the living quarters.

A shared earth closet is built on the end of the row.
