Moss Bridge Darwen
Two long terraces of cottages constructed with watershot facades. Some of the dwellings have been greatly modernized.
Number 10 has an infilled window and was probably a loomshop attached to Number 12. Further signs of infilled windows can be seen at Numbers 24 and 26, whilst Number 30, with an offset window, seems to have originally been a weaving shop of the adjoining house. Two of the dwellings also seem to have had loomshops at first floor level.
On the opposite side of the road similar alterations have taken place. Numbers 21, 19, 15 and 3 all have remains of infilled windows, and seem to be conversions of loomshops formerly belonging to adjacent houses. Over the door lintel of Number 13 is a datestone of 181.
Peak, Bog Height Road SD 669 247
A pair of double fronted cottages with a watershot stone facade. Both have side loomshops lit by triple windows.
Just to the west is Number 89, Bog Height Road, which appears to have had a triple window in the roadside gable end. The central opening has been enlarged to form a door.
