and adjoining
- barn
House and adjoining barn. Mid C18 and perhaps earlier.
Watershot hammer-dressed stone and squared rubble with
graduated stone slate and slate roof. A single-depth 2-storey
house which was made double-depth and 3-storey probably in
the later C18. Door with square-cut stone surround. 3-light
ground floor window and 4-light first and second floor
windows all with recessed cavetto-moulded mullions. Gable-
end chimney stacks one of which is rendered. Central door in
gable with square-cut surround as well as 1 and 2-light
windows and a small brick lean-to extension. The other gable
has blocked windows. The rear has a similar door and 3, 6 and
4-light recessed flat-faced stone mullion windows with king
mullions. The barn predates the house; its roof runs at right
angles to the house and it has a small single storey addition
adjoined to the front. Recessed flat-faced mullion window
openings and 2 blocked double-chamfered lights at attic level
in the gable. Bulletin of the Saddlworth Historical Society,
