Excellent, easy to access blowing house with remains of hearth, drip trough and mould stone.
No contemporary record of the site has survived; nor has it done for either of the other excellently preserved blowing houses upstream. The general construction appears however to discount the likelyhood that these are pre-reformation examples and probably date to the mid 16th - late 17th centuries; or later. All sites in Merrivale are of similar build and believed could be contemporary, maybe suggesting a feud of business interests.
