10/40 Higher Stony Bank Farmhouse and
16.11.1954 former granary adjoining to the
(Formerly listed as Higher Stoney
- II Bank)

House, late C17th. Rendered rubble with sandstone dressings and stone slate
roof. 2 storeys with a central porch having a roof sloping down to 1½ storeys
at the front. The windows have an outer chamfer and an inner cyma moulding.
On each side of the porch is one of 6 lights with mullion and transom and hood
with decorative stops. On the 1st floor there is a 2-light mullioned window on
each side, with a circular window with chamfered surround at the far left. The
1st floor of the porch oversails on a cyma-moulded string course and has a one-
light window with ovolo-moulded surround and ogee head. The door has a cyma-
moulded surround with shaped head and hood. At the left is an agricultural
building, the 1st floor said to be a granary. It has a door with plain reveals
on each floor, the ground-floor door being under the upper platform of the
external stone steps. The right-hand gable of the house has a one-light window
with cyma-moulded surround, with a 4-light rebated and chamfered mullioned
window on the 1st floor. There is an outshut to part of the rear, containing
the stair. Inside, the left-hand room has a wide fireplace, now filled in,
with a chamfered surround and segmental head with an outer chamfer around the
voussoirs. Inside the granary the left-hand house wall has, on the 1st floor,
a blocked one-light ovolo-moulded window surround, suggesting that the granary
may be a later addition.
