House, No. 29, was designed by J. B. and W. Atkinson for Miss Hazelwood in 1843 (Brierley, Leckenby and Keighley). The doorway has a round-arched stone architrave and the windows hinged casements with marginal panes and stone lintels. On the first floor are balconies with anthemion pattern cast-iron railings. The plan shows a dining room and a 'small room' on the ground floor, and a very long wing at the rear containing kitchen, scullery, privy with outside entry, etc. On the first floor were two bedrooms with a servant's bedroom and lumber room in the back wing; this wing had a long lead-covered roof slope to the rear, and a staircase with turned balusters. The original cost was estimated at 500.

House, No. 31, (Plate 103; Fig. 81, p. 93) which is similar to No. 29 but with differences in internal planning and details, was designed in 1847 by J. B. and W. Atkinson, also for Miss Hazelwood. The front doorway leads to a through-passage, with access to the house itself by a door from the passage, directly opposite the staircase. The parlour and kitchen were on the ground floor, with scullery, pantry, privy, etc. in the back wing. There were four bedrooms on the first floor, and also attics above. At the bottom of the garden was a Tub House. The cost was 360.
