A fellow Geographer, ceridwen has suggested a mid-19th century date for these buildings. She knows the history of the locality far better than I do, and may have her reasons - but I'd guess they were earlier. The classical detailing is quite refined - Georgian in flavour rather than Victorian - so that if these were in, say, Stamford (Lincolnshire) or Blandford (Dorset) I'd guess at a date nearer 1800.

The cottages (with their railings) are Grade II listed, but the Listing Text is very brief and gives no guidance as to date LinkExternal link.
