HISTORICAL NOTES The word "cottage" is often misleading when it comes to early houses. This house is a prime example.
The history of this property starts sometime in the 17c, evidenced by early stonework to the rear and seen as the two small weavers' windows on the right side.
Sometime in the late 18c development began when this was extended to the left, probably for lease to hand loom weavers. A little later in the 18c the next door property was constructed, at which time a full length third floor weaving loft over the two properties was added. This was for separate access by outworkers.
Weaving lofts such as this were the immediate predecessors of the modern factory system - This property shows us how the weaving industry developed in the 18c.
Despite the development of the factory system for cotton spinning and later weaving from the 1760s onwards, handloom weaving in the Pennines continued on into the 19c, finally declining in the 1840s.
