Statement of Interest

A traditional early 19th century house, of great value to the streetscape. The deeds date back to 1801, and the ground was purchased from the Kirkland estate. The ground floor of this building was previously a Public House, and according to Mr Holbrook, the owner (2004), the upper floor was used as a Temperance Hall; there was no internal staircase, and the Temperance Hall was accessed through a door on the W gable (where there is now a window). Dunlop's annual horse fair used to be held on the large expanse of ground at the rear of this house.
