  • The plaque at the top of the frontage just below the roof read- MDCCCXXVII, so I presume that although it may have been built in 1826, it was not opened until 1827 ?

  • I have taken the liberty of adding an engraving of the building made shortly after it was built. It was described in ‘Lancashire Illustrated’ (1831) as having “a stone built front with pediment and a Doric portico”
