Artisan’s cottage, Castle Hill, Lancaster

castleHill1739This early example of lettering is set above the doorway to a cottage on Castle Hill Lancaster. Dated 1739, the inscription refers to Richard (1682-1763) and Anne (nee Dickson, -1785.) Thomas.

I highly recommend Emmeline Garnett’s excellent publication The Dated Buildings of South Lonsdale. (2007, The Centre for North-West Regional Studies, Lancaster University), from which has recorded and researched many of the earliest examples of dated buildings in the area.

Location: Castle Hill Lancaster, UK.
