KINGSLEY C.P. BLACK LANE, Whiston
SK 04 NW
- Stable House
Farmhouse. Early to mid-C19. Moulded, copper-slag blocks part-rendered;
tiled roof; verge parapets; brick end stacks. 2-storey, 2-window front;
small-pane casements with painted surrounds. Entrance to rear. Apart
from a small shed this group, consisting of house and 2 barns (q.v.) is
the only example in the locality made from such an unusual material.
The smelting site lay approximately 200m north and the group was possibly
a model to promote a wider distribution of the blocks, which was never
achieved. It is also quite conceivable that the name of the lane is
derived from the extraordinary inky irridescence of the construction.
