HISTORICAL NOTES This house is situated in the early 18c weavers hamlet known as "the Shaws". The word "Shaw" derives from the Old English "sceaga", "copse" or "thicket" - handloom weaving communities were often set up outside the cultivated areas on the borders of the "waste" and close to where the sheep roamed.
This is a late 18c weaver's house, unusually constructed of "weather shot" sandstone ashlar. Unusually, also, this was built as a lean to with pent roof and probably by the owner of the large earlier weaver's house against which it stands.
The standard pitched roof extension is a modern addition.
The Georgian fireplace with gargantuan stone lintel confirms that this was likely to have been occupied by a yeoman weaver rather than outworkers only and would have had a Georgian hob range at construction. The thin stone slab fireplace sides are typical of the area, as the local stone used for internal walling is rather poor.
The flat mullioned windows were very "modern" for the time.
