Full Description

Cottages at Wakebridge Farm, off Leashaw, Crich, dating to at least 1849. The building appears on the Tithe map of 1849, on Plot No. 344, the earliest map currently available to the HER. Its neighbouring farm house has a date stone of 1772. The building was subject to a heritage impact assessment in 2018. 'Building C adjoins the farmhouse, Building A, to the west. It appears on all available mapping and is of historical value. It is a predominantly single storey structure with a pitched asbestos sheeted roof, likely a later alteration. The northern elevation contains a stone buttress and three doorways, two of which have been modified. The westernmost doorway has been reduced in size with the original shape outlined by a large wooden lintel and evidence construction join in the stone work. The other modified doorway has been altered from a doorway to a window and still contains a large stone lintel. The easternmost doorway also contains a large wooden lintel and has not been reduced in size.' (1)
