1/90 Nos 1 and 2
(Haughcroft Head)


House, now in two occupations. Early C18. Hammer-dressed stone, stone slate roof
with coped gables with kneelers. 2 storeys. Square plan with central stack to ridge.
6-bay facade with main doorway in right-hand end bay. The doorway has a square lintel
and chamfered surround; the lintel is inscribed 'RDF 1705'. Each of the outer bays
has chamfered reveals to cross windows, the mullions and transoms removed. One window
was altered to form another doorway and is now blocked. First floor has 6 bays of
2-light windows without transoms (all mullions removed). A continuous hoodmould runs
over the ground-floor windows and rises at the east end of the facade to give a gable
shaped tabling over the principal entrance, this may imply that it was intended to
have a porch. Attached to the east gable is an outshut of the early C18, refronted
C19, of coursed rubble, windows with flush mullions. The right hand return wall has
an 8-light mullioned window with chamfered surround which retains only the king
mullion. This outshut was probably one room formerly used in connection with cloth
production with its own entry door to the rear. Rear of house has mullioned windows
of 5 lights, 2 lights and 4 lights to ground floor with similar above, some mullions
removed. Part of the rear wall has been rendered.
