3/174 Nail-maker's workshop
5m south of High Cross
Moor Farmhouse


Nail-maker's workshop, now outbuilding. Early C19. Single-storey,
single-cell. Gable front: doorway with tie-stone jambs, those to
left forming quoins, with rectangular window to right in punch-dressed
stone surround. Left-hand return wall has similar window, both with
altered glazing. The interior is preserved complete with tools and
equipment in Cliff Castle, Keighley (q.v.). Silsden was famous for
its nail-making industry which reached its peak in 1850, when it was
a purely domestic industry. Mass-production methods superseded,
and therefore the industry finally ceased in the area in 1919. This
small building is therefore an important survival of the principal
craft of Silsden Parish and the only workshop in the region that can
be so identified.
