Pair of small first-floor loomshops (one now demolished) set across ends of two terraces of cottages, all built by John Cockshott in or shortly after 1805. Cockshott, a local grocer and cotton manufacturer, had previously put out yarn to domestic weavers, and the loomshop represents a stage in controlling production which culminated in construction of Chapel Street loomshop.
