probably the original doorway to the old passage. An additional section at the upper
end links Lane End to Carpenters (Laithwaite).

with diagonal stops at the upper end of the hall, the room over the inner room
jettied into the hall which has a hollow-moulded granite fireplace with bread oven
and a plank and muntin gallery to the left of it, starting below ceiling level with
step stops and mortises on the lower beam. At the rear of the hall there is a door
with a cranked head, a window with plain mullions at the rear of the inner room is
now covered by a later addition. The passage, in Leigh Cottage has chamfered stopped
joists, the rear of the stack is exposed in the passage wih a cornice (Laithwaite).
