Quarry Lane Cottages, Haslingfield

1 – 5 Quarry Lane, Haslingfield

History of 1 to 5 Quarry Lane

Listed building:

Row of five cottages. Late C18 or early C19. Timber-framed, rendered. Longstraw thatch and corrugated iron with two axial grey gault brick ridge stacks and a third ridge stack with string course and possibly earlier brickwork.

These were built to provide housing for the quarry workers and stabling for the horses needed to take the carts up the hill. The downstairs bedroom of No 4 was a butcher’s shop at one time.
