Matching 2-storey radial extensions to each cottage at rear, erected in 1970s, at which time the interiors were reshaped: then the second floor was a continuous loft. Over centre doorway a rectangular plaque with hoodmou1d, reading "IHH/1803" - presumably one of the Hunt family from Compton Castle (qv) nearby. (An almost identical crescent exists to the south of Charlton Musgrove, about 4 miles away, but this was too much altered to be of special interest).
