This pair of cottages whilst obviously symmetrical has inspiring measurement
possibilities. Until recently all land surveying was based on the surveyors
chain. A surveyors chain (22 yards long) is exhibited along one side of the cottages
and the dimensions of the houses and their plot are very precise. The
plot is one chain (22 yards or 66 feet) square, which is one tenth of an
acre. The cottages are used as
a venue for our Victorian workshops.
