Statement of Interest

Crookmore is a good example of a little altered traditional building that presents a distinctive frontage to the main road. It forms one of a group of buildings of the same design scheme which were probably built to house workers of a nearby granite quarry. Crookmore along with Moor House and Heathbank to the W all retain their original contiguous boundary walls, gate piers, railings and gates. Listed B Group with Moor house and Heathbank.
