My Grandfather lived in one of these cottages in the very early 1900 and he told me that there were 5 separate houses two facing the mill and three behind.

Mrs Saddleworth lived in the first house to the rear, I believe she was the last tenant. Lovely old lady, used to let us pick the blackberries from her garden, she must have been a hundred years old, after she died, the cottages became derilect and you could see that it really was a one up one down, with outside bathroom. Would like to know if anyone else remembers her circa, 1970-1980.
