Some of the cottages on the opposite side of the track from Royds Hall Farm are also very old. The white rendered house (which I understand is Heaton Royds Farm) has a datestone above the door saying 1632. The cottages further back are a bit more recent I believe, or at least were altered and added to in the 18th and 19th centuries.
The hamlet, on the edge of Heaton Woods, is known locally as 'Six Days Only'. I understand that this is because at one time (within living memory) they served refreshments here, notably homemade dandelion and burdock pop and nettle beer - but never on Sundays! I have spoken to several local people who remember quite clearly coming here as children and drinking the pop - they say it was wonderful.
I have always had a liking for dandelion and burdock, ever since I was a child watching my uncles play cricket in the village team. My dad used to give me sixpence to buy a bottle from the pavilion. The taste of the pop and the smell of old wood and sweat in the pavilion will stay with me forever.
