Possibly "17 century, L-shaped stone house with many walls rebuilt in brown brick and massive projecting chimney at end of shorter wing, which bears remarkable plaster decoration, representing a tree supporting a form of cross and something resembling a thistle." English Heritage. NGR: SD7629108737
The photo shows the gable end of a house looking east. The bottom part of the building was constructed in local sandstone probably from the quarries near Ainsworth Village. On the left bottom corner of the photo is a dog kennel. The meaning of the decoration is not known - if anyone does know please get in touch! KH
