SD9226 : House in the Bride Stones 1

taken 12 years ago, near to Lydgate, Calderdale, England

House in the Bride Stones 1
House in the Bride Stones 1
A house known as Fast Ends once stood between two of the rocks, and was the home of weaver, poet and botanist Abraham Stansfield and his family in the early 1800s.

The smaller holes in the rock would have been where the first floor beams fitted. The larger hole does not go far back and seems to have been a cupboard with slots cut in the rock for shelves.

The top of the rock has been cut to allow a roof, sloping to the left, to rest.
