Three slate-built cottages, one of which has been converted to a corner shop, that are inspired by the homes of former copper miners in the village of Coniston. Known locally as the Banks, this area of simple but substantial homes was built upon the steep fellside above the village during the mid to late 19th century.
Each of the cottages in the model is a one-up, one-down property. A spiral stone staircase within a paneled enclosure connects the ground and upper floor. There are fireplaces both downstairs and up. The ground floor fireplace is designed to take a small range. To the rear of each property is an extension that contains a wash-house and a separate privy with earth closet. A small walled and gated yard encloses each property at the rear.
