Weaver’s Cottage, Kirkham

On the surface this building looks quite modern but when you look more closely you can see the hints that it is older but has been refurbished on more than one occasion. The clues to it originally having been a weavers cottage are the low boarded up openings near the ground that would originally have shed light into the basement room where the looms would have stood. The height of the basement room is the reason that the entrance door is above ground level and accessed by steps. 

The other houses in the row have some of these features but have been modernised and I wanted to emphasise the character of this particular house.
