29.6.1966 The Rochdale
Childrens Moorland
(formerley listed under
- II Nick Road Lane)

Farmhouse and attached buildings, now children's home. 1756
on stone lintel. Watershot stone with stone slate roof.
3-unit 2-storey farmhouse with porch to central unit. The
attached buildings to the left have an outshut porch to the
front and a wing and extensive C20 addition to the rear. By
the presence of a cart entry, now a door, it would appear
that these were farm buildings, maybe a barn. Farmhouse has
various 1, 2 and 3-light flat-faced mullion windows and a
projecting porch. The 3-bay building to the left has a
central cart entry with 4-piece square-cut jambs and dated
lintel; the projecting porch in bay 3 seems to have been
added as does a lean-to which has a 3-light chamfered
mullion window. The gable has a 3-light chamfered mullion
window with hoodmould at first floor level.
