SE 0063-0163
(east side)
10/10 Nos. lA, lB and 2
House or workshop, now 2 flats and a house. Dated 1754 with C20
conversion. Coursed gritstone rubble, graduated stone slate roof. The
left 2 bays of 3 storeys, reduced to a 2-storey bay to right. Recessed bay
far right not of special interest. Quoins. The 3-storey part has central
C20 door in chamfered sawn stone surround, flanked by 3-light windows with
slightly recessed flat-faced mullions. The 2 first-floor windows similar
with an inserted square window above the door and a reset date plaque with
raised lettering to far left, " L " with cross motif between the I and M.
The 2-storey bay to right (Broughton Cottage) has a C20 stable door in sawn
stone surround to right, 3-light flat-faced mullion windows to left on
ground and first floors and a rectangular window above the door. Stone
gutter brackets to both, end stacks to the 3-storey building, that to right
also serving the 2-storey house. The left bay has been cut away on the
ground floor, the upper storey supported by a cast-iron beam. The reset
datestone was possibly above the original main entrance to the range,
removed when the corner of the building was demolished to allow vehicular
access to the Fold. Interior not inspected at resurvey. An important
dated building; the mid C18 saw great changes in the economy of the farming
village, when miners began to arrive to work the lead mining fields beyond
Yarnbury . This block may have been built as a speculation, housing
several families and possibly workshop or storage facilities.
