Full Description

House, Nos. 15, 17, is of two builds. The S.E. part was built as a two-storey house probably in the early 18th century; in 1790 it was acquired by Thomas Wolstenholme who recorded in his will, dated 1800, that in 1799 he built a smaller house to the N.W. and added a third storey to the earlier house. Both parts of the building have been much altered and now comprise a shop with a single maisonette above.
