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.
