106-112 Nottingham Road, Stapleford, Nottinghamshire
These houses were built in the early 1800s. They were originally 4 lace makers' cottages. The distinctive windows on the top floor are a sign that it was used by lace or other textile workers. Windows were very expensive at this time and large windows like this were only put into houses where a large amount of light was needed because people were working. Lace making was a major industry in Nottinghamshire at this time.
