- Farm

- II

Farm store and barn, formerly house and barn, mid C18th. Sandstone rubble
with stone slate roof. 2 storeys. North wall of former house has 2 doors
with plain reveals. To the right of the right-hand one is a flush
chamfered mullioned window. To the right of the left-hand one is a
one-light chamfered stair window. On the 1st floor is a window with
rebated and chamfered surround. To its right is one with plain stone
surround. The barn, adjoining to the right, has a wide entrance with plain
reveals and stone lintel. To the left is a shippon door with plain
reveals. To the right there is a lean-to addition against the front wall,
with a shippon door beyond it to the right. Chimneys to each side of
former house. The south wall of the house has a window with plain stone
surround and flat-faced mullions, of 5 lights, one now blocked. To the
right is a window with plain stone surround. On the 1st floor there is a
similar window. The barn, at the left, has 2 small widely-spaced windows
with plain reveals. On the upper floor there is a pitching hole. Between
the barn and the former house the masonry is continuous on the ground
floor. Under the eaves there is a straight joint with quoins to the house,
suggesting that the barn walls have been raised, probably early C19th.
Inside, the western room of the former house has a shouldered stone
fireplace with moulded mantel. In front of it, between the boxed axial
beams and projecting upwards through the 1st floor, is a beef loft: a
small compartment recessed into the ceiling for drying beef and hams. The
roof has one truss with tie beam and collar, and a purlin re-used from a
cruck building.
