There is said to have been a potash kiln here.
: 2009: Archaeology Data Service

hearsay Built on the site of an earlier house inhabited by monks, 1263.
There was a forestair to a loft where packmen travelling could take a rest.
A small building was once a pigsty at ground floor, privy at first floor, and henhouse at second floor level.

notes The Hawkshead Parish Account book, 1786, includes:-
Journey horse hire and expenses to Backbarrow to Eliner Preston to take her child to Mr. Kellets of Long Sleddale to be cured of a scabbed head 2/6.
Parish register entries have Kellets at Kilnstones and Murthwaite in the 1780s, but perhaps elsewhere in the valley.
