Photo-a-Day (Friday, 4th September, 2015)
Oh dear.......when I worked in hospital we referred to the mortuary as "Rose Cottage"!
Nice one David.
Hall Lane in Hindley?? David....
or do we have to guess where it is??
Nice Shot David, Thats Hall Lane In Haigh, Down Leyland Mill Lane, Was Down There A Couple Weeks Ago.
Good picture! Do the Marshall brothers still have a farm off Hall lane?
What a lovely house and photo, David.
It reminds me of the photos you used to get on boxes of chocolates in the 1950s/60s. Really lovely.
I think the farm off Hall Lane Hindley, belonged to the Farmworth family or used to do.
Which Hall Lane are we talking about?????
This is most probably a question for a builder, but here goes. Went did builders stop fitting wall supports to houses. I can see three at the front of the building, one just above the front door canopy. What has changed that they are no longer used today.
Nice house and photo.
The house supports as you call them are not built in on construction, they are put in after movement to hold the building together. Subsidence due to underground workings in the mines.
Alan the morgue is still named Rose Cottage.
This house was owned by the Hampson's who ran the Malt Works and Potter's Herbal Supplies which was lower down, they lived in Haigh Cottage next door, Rose Cottage at the time was occupied by Peter Webster and his family, he was the foreman at the Malt Works.
nephro, Alex never said HOUSE supports, he said WALL supports, their is a difference.
Alex, you don't see the tie rods today because houses are built on concrete rafts in areas where subsidance has ceased or slowed down.
I have worked on old houses and these plates had tie rods up to 2 inches in diameter going though the buildings and they where not hidden .People used them to hang things on them.They were as said before to stop bulging walls caused by subsidence etc
Two brothers had the farm - one of their fields was on the right hand side, in the middle was a pathway leading to the Almshouses.
You used to see them on old terraced houses where their was no evidence of subsidence or pits.
