Six of the Rosetta Cottages in south Belfast have fallen into disrepair.

They were built in the early 1800s and housed saddlers who plied their trade to passing travellers.

The Hearth Heritage division of Clanmill Housing Group is in charge of the project at the junction of the Ravenhill and Ormeau Roads.

Siobhan Brown said Northern Ireland did not have too many heritage buildings and it was important to hold on to them.
