20.10.52 Farmhouse and
adjacent cottage


House; several C18 building phases with earlier work incorporated. Coursed
roughly-squared stone with cut quoins and dressings; stone slate roofs except
for C20 grey tiles on south of north-west wing; 4 out of 5 stacks rebuilt in
brick, some rendered. Irregular plan.

South elevation in 2 sections: right part 3 storeys, 2 bays and a wide 2-storey
right bay. Left part has 8-pane sashes and left end stack. Wide right bay has
altered panelled door in alternating-block surround, to left of 16-pane sash
windows; and stone right end stack.

Set back left wing 3 storeys, 1 bay. Blocked doorway, 12-pane sashes to upper
floors, left end stack. All sashes renewed, all gables with raised reverse-
stepped coping.

Return shows gabled stair wing, with 12-pane Yorkshire sash, rising behind
outshut of main wing; to right, single-storey kitchen with boarded door, 4-pane
sash and right end stack heightened in brick.

Interior: open-well open-string stair with stick balusters and ramped moulded
handrail (upper part reconstructed with old materials). Flush-panelled and
2-panel doors with H and L hinges; 1st floor fireplace with moulded stone

A section of 1-metre thick wall on the west is probably part of an earlier
house, the sequential rebuilding of which would explain the complex plan.
