Chartist cottage photographs

I see that the Chartist historian Stephen Roberts (co-author, among other things, of Images of Chartism, has added some pictures of the Chartist cottages at Great Dodford in Worcestershire to his website.
The cottages were built in the 1840s to house workers who won the right to farm smallholdings on the Chartist land colony there. The cottages are now owned by the National Trust and have, since the pictures were taken, been lovingly restored.
