Formerly the surgery of Dr. Bladwin and then Dr. J.D. Walker.

In local historian Philip Ahier's The Legends and Traditions of Huddersfield and Its District, he discounts the idea that The Green was formerly Lockwood Hall but gave the following description:

I had the privilege of viewing this homestead in the late Dr. Baldwin's lifetime, and agree with Mr. Taylor Dyson that it is a "charming old house." The attic contains some massive oak beams. The building attached to the dwelling-house was converted into a surgery by one of Dr. Baldwin's predecessors. In the room above the surgery are massive old oak beams, which, in all probability, date to Tudor days. In the year 1832, the room now above the Surgery was used as a Mangle House.
