Sitting on the junction of two Ulverston roads stands a small building once home to Sir John Barrow.
This small cottage at Dragley Beck was where he was born on 19th June 1764.
It would have looked a little different back then, for a start the roof would have likely been made from thatch and there would have been a garden wall sweeping round the front of the building.
At the time Dragley Beck was also a small village in the parish of Ulverston. It certainly wouldn't have been as busy as it is today. Of course as time moved on the village was fully enveloped by the growing town.
This building is a wonderful remnant of the past and it is excellent that it is still standing today.
