Adwalton Moortop, nos. 68 - 70 (Drighlington) (2 comments)
Black & White imageUndated. View of a pair of cottages situated at Moortop, Adwalton, near Plasticisers Ltd. These houses are still standing today (2017), numbered 68-70, though they are now on the edge of the Cavendish development. The house on the left seen derelict here, with windows that were once coloured glass now broken and an arch removed from above the door. The garden wall is also derelict and the garden and grass verge have become overgrown. Since this time the section of the building to the left hand side of the front door has been removed and the remainder renovated. The house on the right is seen here with its coloured glass windows retained and is surrounded by a well trimmed hedge and wall. On the far right the end of another house is visible with the porch extension just seen. These have both since been renovated and modernised. On the left behind the houses is a structure with a corrugated metal roof. This was the site of New Mill. The area where the cottages and gardens were built occupies the ground that was held by the Parliamentarian soldiers under General Fairfax before the Battle of Adwalton in June 1643, during the English Civil War.
