TALLY HOUSE RESTORATION

The tally house is near the tunnel under the main road through which the tramways carried stone from the hill. The house was used to weigh the stone. This was rather important for the quarrymen as their wages were paid on the amount of stone they produced. The tally house was also used to direct the stone to either the kiln or direct to the canal or railway.
The restoration work is being carried out by volunteers under the expert direction of Kevin Swain. Kevin comes from a long line of builders who worked from Pant. It could well be that the tally house was built by Kevin’s ancestors!
