No. 18
The Old Cottage
SK 2856/2956 1/117


House (formerly house with cottage attached). Partly C17 extended in late-C18 or
early-C19. Roughly coursed rubble; Welsh slate and tiled roofs. Plan: 3 units; the
two units to the left heightened (presumably by Arkwright to accommodate his textile
workers), that to the right surviving to the original height. Shorter parallel
range to rear. One brick external end stack (to right) and two red and black brick
ridge stacks. Front: irregular 3-window range. 1st floor has one small blocked
window to extreme left, two 2-light windows of different sizes with stone surrounds,
the smaller with rebated mullion and surround, and (to the lower part) a 3-light
window with rebated mullions and surround. Ground with 3 large 2-light windows, the
2 to the left (flanking a doorway) with mullions; wide doorway into the lower
section probably the original. Interior not inspected; it is understood to contain
an early painted ceiling.
