crock bank

1) Possibly an ingle-nook bench, since Halliwell noted that ‘crock’ in Westmorland was the back of the chimney.

1675 a skin laped up in a poake and put betwixt a crock bancke and the chimlay, Scotton. If that is not the meaning it might be a rack or set of shelves for pots, comparable with dish bank or benk.
