Protected Status/Designation

  • None recorded

Full Description

SK 383 734 Whittington Moor. Cottages on Pottery Lane, demolished in 1963. Three cruck frames with collars and yokes. (1, 2) The grid reference above cannot be correct as it lies over 130m to the north of Pottery Lane. The 1st ed. 25" OS map shows no buildings on the north side of Pottery Lane at that time, consequently it is assumed that the cottages were on the south side, possibly in the area of SK 383732, as buildings are shown here on the Newbold Parliamentary Enclosure Map of 1838. They may have originated as encroachments on the margins of the common. (3)
