Top: This fireplace was uncovered when a wall was stripped in Ivy House.

Middle: Back view of Ivy House, situated on Over Lane, for many years home to the Grimshaw family but the freehold was owned by the Marshalls until 1830 when it was sold to the Rev L W Hird.
Between 1910 and the 1940s a hand laundry was operated from there.
Farmland which had once been part of Ivy House property was split, Larkfield Drive was built on part of it and on Over Lane Aireborough Council built bungalows for the elderly in the 1960s.

1978: For approximately 200 years the tenants were the Grimshaws, a family of Quaker clothiers.

In 1670 Sarah Grimshaw obtained a licence for worship at the Quaker Meeting Hall in Rawdon. In the early 20th century the house was used as a hand laundry.
