Protected Status/Designation

Full Description

A Grade II listed cottage of the late 18th or early 19th century. Built of coursed squared gritstone with gritstone dressings, the two storey cottage has a plain tile roof with stone coped gables and brick gable chimney-stacks. The three-bay south elevation has an off-centre doorway with stone lintel and massive quoins, and a 20th century half-glazed door. To the right there is a two-light square section flush mullion window with small pane metal casement window. To the left a similar single-light window and to the left again an early 19th century metal casement window under a stone lintel. The first floor has three windows matching those below. (1) Craven believed the cottage was built in the period 1777-1787, as the building seems to have be shown on the enclosure map of 1787, while a different building seems to be shown on the terrier of 1777. The cottage was probably built for William Bates, who acquired a lease on the nearby quarry (further uphill), and had two cottages built, one for him and one for a workman, close to the track down which the stone from his quarry was carried. The cottage has two storeys and is built of millstone grit, probably from Bates's quarry. It consists of three elements: The oldest part was a simple, small two room rectangular cottage. Sometime around 1791-1821 a lean-too structure was added to the east. Finally, another extension was built to the north in the early 20th century. (2)
