These cottages, which were obviously once occupied by hand-loom weavers, stood alongside the rough and stony track leading from Tunshill to Rakewood. The right-hand pair were demolished very soon after this photograph was taken. The other two lasted a few more years, but all were long gone before the M62 motorway came scorching its way through to obliterate the site completely in 1968 The above is almost certainly the only existent photograph of the cottages.
