I think this is Pennant End on Start lane. Whaley bridge.

The other day whilst driving back from Macc I turned down Kishfield Lane towards Start Lane.
The road changes from Kishfield Lane to Start Lane after Kishfield Bridge. As you climb the hill you come across the house in the photo but I could not see any house name displayed although I think it must be as LS says Pennant End as about another 100yards up the cobbled road is the old Pennant End Sand Quarry.
The house is now sand blasted and back to natural stone. Pennant End Sand Quarry closed years ago and now is filled in and Highland cattle live there.

"Pennant End" is the bigger house after going past the old quarry round a corner towards Whaley.

I think the house Pam refers to is the one opposite the gate leading to Fall Hey Farm and Fox Hill. As far as I remember, that house is called "Pennant", and the one shown in the photo is "Pennant End".

RSS was brave to drive past there unless he has a Land Rover. I can remember years ago my uncle got stuck in his Ford Popular going up the hill shown in the picture.
