Doorway to Birks House and Blue Plaque
The plaque commemorates Sir John Cockroft (1897-1987) who lived here from 1899 to 1925. He was a pioneer in the peaceful uses of nuclear power, and in 1932 he and Dr ETS Walton were the first to split the atom by artificial means. He was joint winner of the Nobel Prize for physics in 1951.

The lintel over the door is inscribed 'ISC 1805', and at the side of the door there is a date-stone inscribed 'JMC Scaitcliffe 1783'.
