Late C18 Grade II Cobble House

Late C18 Grade II Cobble House

The use of cobbles in construction was common in various parts of the country, this Grade II listed building is recorded as one of Blackpool’s oldest surviving examples. The diminutive scale of the building means the front door is only 1400 mm tall, internally the ceiling height is barely two metres.

The quality of this type of construction varies, the un-rendered wall to the left shows brick lacing courses but these are not always present. Instability can be a problem in this type of building especially if the wall junctions have not been adequately jointed.
