5/107 Lower Cockham Farmhouse and
attached barn
- II

Farmhouse, dated 1717 (on lintel of former doorway in south gable wall), but
probably part of earlier house; altered with barn attached at east side.
House of sandstone rubble with quoins, stone slate roof (probably raised at
eaves), with chimney stack at each original side wall. Single-depth 2-bay
plan with single storey outshut under catslide roof to west side. Two
storeys; original doorway at right hand side of south gable wall, now altered
as window, has large rectangular lintel inscribed L H; 6 altered or inserted
windows in this wall, and another doorway into the outshut to the left; right
return wall has single round-headed light at 1st floor but is otherwise
concealed by attached barn. North gable wall has a 16-light double-chamfered
mullion and transom window at ground floor, a 3-light chamfered mullion window
above; single-storey extension covers right hand side of this wall. Interior:
each ground floor bay has one very large chamfered beam; Ist floor has smaller
beams above these, forming ties to roof trusses which are apparently later
(but mostly concealed). Four-bay barn (with 2-bay 2-storey continuation) of
watershot coursed sandstone with stone slate roof has front outshut covering
dairy to rear of house, opposed segmental-headed wagon entrances with jambs
composed of single massive slabs; stepped-out continuation has 3 doorways with
rectangular jambs and lintels.
