Delph is near Oldham in the West Riding of Yorkshire and it is a beautiful little village characterized by its abundance of traditional weavers cottages in the squat vernacular style of this area.

It is the subject of my latest sale. Above the church there is a wool wall which was intended to aid the drying of cloth. There also survives a row of stone tenters posts which were made to stretch cloth. Interesting ironwork in the grave yard of the church and also within the village.
