Farmhouse (unoccupied at time of inspection, October 1989). Last quarter of
C18. Cobbles with some brick; roofs originally thatched, now corrugated iron
(over house). Slate and corrugated asbestos over barn/shippon. Plan: house
with parlour/kitchen with 2 small service rooms; barn and shippon attached (but
of different build, possibly c.1800). House, 2 storeys, regular 2-window range
with door to left; all windows with Yorkshire sashes. Rear with 2 ground-floor
windows. Barn with large waggon doors and door to shippon; rear projects beyond
line of house. The shippon roof is partially collapsed. Interior: remarkably
intact fittings and plan. Flag floor; 2 shallow-chamfered ceiling beams with
original joists; brick baffle (or heck) partition. Slightly lower iron fire
surround with decorative panels and paterae; Victorian range (by Hallmark & Gill

simple sunken panel doors with strap hinges throughout. The first floor retains
its early low partitions, planked, the doors with strap hinges. Roof: side
purlins and ridge piece. The house is divided by a full height division. A
rare survival of a C18 Fylde cobble-built farmhouse (the only one surviving in
Blackpool District).
