The History of Lockwood and North Crosland (1980) by Brian Clarke:

This building, now a private hotel, was the home of the "well-to-do" Battye family (see also Crosland Hill Hall). The earliest part of the building dates back to around 1650 and, obvious from the long row of upper windows, was originally a weaver's house. Also attached was a small barn with various outbuildings around the yard, showing, as one would expect that in addition to weaving, farming was also carried out. Originally the building was owned by the North family but came into the Battye family in the 18th century. Around 1750 the building was extended on the south west side. The extension, of equal size to the original building, is of a style in keeping with the residence of a gentleman. A point of interest is that a number of windows, including a whole row in the north east gable, have been filled with stone, a relic of the days when tax was paid upon the number of windows in a house, a tax which was only repealed during the last century.
