Publication Account (1996)

Other houses on Eskside West still stand in relatively unaltered condition. No. 28 Eskside West, although now harled and with a blocked window and attached to a more modern terrace, is an example of more modest dwellings of the turn of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, as a cottage with door margins, a slate roof and single mid stack. Other dwellings along this side of the Esk reveal the graciousness that was marked in some desirable areas of the town by the first half of the nineteenth century .. Nos 5 & 6 Eskside West are particularly attractive single-storey, semi-detached cottages with attics. Built around 1840, they are of coursed rubble with ridge slated roof and skewed gables with pointed finials. With their doors in the re-entrant angles, they have retained such of their original charm.
