SK4262 : Cottages

taken 13 years ago, near to Pilsley, Derbyshire, Great Britain

Prior to 1800, Pilsley was purely an agricultural settlement and at that time it consisted of Upper Pilsley and Nether Pilsley. Few of the houses from that period still exist, these being some of them on the corner of SK4262 : Station Road and SK4262 : Sitwell Grange Lane nearSK4262 : Pilsley Primary School.

There are a few others around Barlow Bank SK4262 : Barlow Bank Farm and SK4262 : Grange Farm in Upper Pilsley near the site of the old village well.

In the main these houses are constructed from coal-measure sandstone from a local quarry. This stone is soft and contains a high percentage of iron. The quarry that it came from was to the north of Upper Pilsley but no longer exists.
