Auction sale of Warninglid houses in 1973

According to the notes on the back page of the catalogue, number 5 sold for £16,000, number 6 was withdrawn at £18,500, and number 7 was sold for £23000. It seems that the latter price was reduced to £22,000 as the vendor wished to make a donation of £1000 to the purchaser, being the church authorities.
Numbers 5 and 6 were granted Grade II listed building status in 1983 where the cottages were listed as one property named Woodlands. The listing reads:-
One building. C17 or earlier timber-framed building with red brick infilling,
northernmost window-bay refaced with ashlar. Hipped roof. Casement windows.
One modern window-bay added at south end. Two storeys. Four windows.
