Carron Cottage saved from demolition?


In September 2019, planning permission was sought to demolish Carron Cottage on Jacktrees Road. The application was submitted by Mr T. Toman (Toman Paving LTD) for the est. £170,000 property.

Plans to demolish the cottage were met with outrage from residents:
Anna: An absolute sin to demolish it. 
Michael: It's disgraceful and disgusting thing to have done, all in the quest for money.
  • Cleator Moor Town Council objected to the plans
The Town Councils objection to the demolition was based upon "historic links to the mining heritage of Cleator Moor. The Carron Mining company owned the cottage which was used as offices and as a clinic clearly shown on an OS map of 1899."

Council members also raised concern over the need for this development in Cleator Moor which currently provides far in excess of its requirement of the housing supply for the Borough.

On 2nd October 2019, Toman Paving LTD went into Administration. Administrator, Kris Anthony Wigfield stated that "Begbies Traynor Group have been instructed to oversee the marketing and disposal of Carron Cottage".

It is currently unknown how the sale of Carron Cottage will affect demolition plans. It should be noted that plans submitted to Copeland Borough Council were in the name of Toman Paving LTD, and that entity is no longer in operation.
  • The Carron Company were from Scotland. They operated the Jacktrees Iron Ore mine. The company was formed in 1759, and named after the River Carron at Larbert.
  • The steelworks produced a range of cast-iron goods and the Carronade, a naval cannon.
The Carron Iron Company acquired the properties of Jacktrees and Crowgarth (in part) from the Birkbeck family in 1797.

The Cumberland Pacquet for May 13, 1800, has this item: At Carron Works, on the evening of Saturday seven-night, almost alarming fire broke out in the back shade (shed) of the timber yard, and notwithstanding the efforts of over 150 men and two engines, the place was entirely burnt down.
