SOWERBY BRIDGE HOLLINS LANE

12/100
Nos 43, 45 and 47
(The Hollins)
27.10.81
- II
House, now 3 dwellings. Late medieval, of several builds; encased in C17 (possibly
1688); subdivided, altered, added to and possibly re-encased mid C19. Timber frame
encased in C19 coursed squared stone; stone slate roof. 2-storey hall, formerly with
rear aisle, having wing projecting forward on right and cross-wing projecting to rear
on left. south-east front: 3 cells, let one (no 43) with one 1st-floor window; 2nd one
(no 45) with 3 1st-floor windows and a 4th in a pent 2-storey porch projecting on right
which leads onto dais; 3rd cell (no 47) projecting further forward and with 4 1st
floor windows. Doors and windows are C19 with plain stone surrounds, the doorways of
nos 43 and 47 with cornices and no 43's leading into the original cross-passage.
Plain gutter brackets. Roof hipped at left end and at left end of no 47. Various C19
stacks. Interior: at left end of no 45, backing on to cross-passage, is tall fire-
place with stop-chamfered moulded surround and moulded cornice with pendants inscribed
'R' '16' 'T'. In no 43 the cross-wing is separated from the passage by a partition
88
wall of several courses of stone supporting plank and muntin panelling with close-
studded walling above; mortices in the wall plate suggest the hall was floored over
before the 1688 fireplace was inserted. The wing was formerly subdivided by a timber
cross-wall. On the 1st floor of no 43 close-studded timber-framing can be seen at
various points in the front and back walls. On the right side of the wing, at the
back, is a stone wall with a double-chamfered mullion window which looks into the
central area of the hall, implying that this was not originally so deep. In this
position in the hall, there also seems to have been a gable at one time, indicating
varous phases of development. In the roof there are 2 king-post trusses over the hall
(one with A struts) and 2 over the wing. Mortices in the rafters adjacent to the main
stack show the existence of a former cap for a firehood.
