On looking through the census records for Rawdon Mr Cockcroft the Headmaster lived in one of the cottages next to the school on the left as you enter the school carpark. The Barrett families also lived in these cottages about the same time they were a family of stonemasons and Esther Barrett was the mother of Brian Close the Yorkshire and England cricketer.
