was possibly divided into separate cottages in the later C18 to accommodate
mining families when the Duke of Devonshire began to develop the lead mines
on Yarnbury after 1750. Being visible fron the main street No. 2 was of
more importance and the alterations then included raising the roof and
resetting a C17 window to light the added storey. Nos. 4 and 6 remained
more humble buildings, being refenestrated in the mid C19, a period of
rapid expansion in the lead industry.
