Whilst Timsbury itself is mentioned in the Domesday Book, the expansion of the village to include the Hook Hill area occurred during the early 1800’s – the most intensive period of mining in the area.Appearing on the 1784 Tithe map of Timsbury as pasture land owned by the Flower family, the cottages on this site are believed to date from around 1828 and certainly appear on the 1840 Tithe map (still under the Flower’s ownership). Like the rest of the village, the majority of the occupants would have been coal miners working in one of the 11 local pits. No1 The Hook was once two cottages, as can be seen from the blocked doors on the front elevation.
