HISTORICAL NOTES This house has been converted from the barn end of a mid 18c "laithe house" and retains its flat arched barn entrance.
Laithe houses were constructed by Tenant Farmers on newly enclosed land - The word "Shaw" derives from the Old English "sceaga", "copse" or "thicket", that is land with some tree cover on the edges of the cultivated land.
The "laithe house" is a late form of the "long house", that is a house which combined domestic with farming activity in the one building.
