An historic photograph of Leashaw appears to show a chimney to the rear of the gable end of Hollywell Cottage. (1)
The chimney in the photograph could correspond to the site of an outbuilding shown on historic OS mapping uphill from Rose Cottage. There is only a very small building shown on the 1st edition OS map of c. 1880. It is still present on the 3rd edition 25" OS map of the early 20th century. (2, 3)
There is nothing that confirms an industrial use for this building or a chimney on the OS map, but the photograph is persuasive. It is perhaps possible that the arched structure currently visible on the site is a cut off chimney base, with the arch perhaps representing a flue entry (although these are usually below ground). The structure behind Rose Cottage could therefore be of local historic significance, but it would not be of national significance. (4)
