Full Description

Houses, Nos. 1, 2, of two storeys and attics, were a U-shaped building comprising a straight range facing Spen Lane with a back wing to N. at each end. The E. wing contained remains of timber framing, probably of the early 17th century. The main range was probably timber-framed originally but had been completely rebuilt in brick in the late 17th century. It retained an older collar-rafter roof in which some of the collars had peg-holes for fixing crown-posts but these had been removed and the roof had been reconstructed with side-purlins. The W. wing had been mostly rebuilt in the 19th century. Demolished.
