Alphabet Friday - Quickwood


Q is for Quickwood and that is the name of this historic terrace of houses in Mossley, just over the hill from Ashton.

The three storey building was Quick Manor, sometimes called Mossley Manor. This was built in the 17th century as the manor house of Quickmere, one of the four divisions of Saddleworth. This part of Mossley was at that time in Yorkshire along with Saddleworth.

The adjoining two storey cottages were added in phases between around 1760 and 1820. At that time the whole area was very rural. The church of St John the Baptist was built on the hill a short distance behind Quickmere in 1878.
