9/57 Lower Farmhouse

Farmhouse, now house. Probably early C18, extended early to mid-C19 with later
additions and alterations. Uncoursed limestone rubble; stone slate roof.
Original 3-bay C18 house extended to left in C19. Two storeys and attic. C18
part has 3-window front; C20 casements with wood lintels; 2 raking eaves dormers
in middle of roof slope. Central C20 half-glazed door under contemporary open
gabled timber porch. Integral ashlar end stack with dripstone and capping to
right and similar ridge stack (formerly an end stack) to left at junction with
C19 addition (straight joint). This has a C20 casement to each floor but is said
formerly to have been stables with hayloft above. Gabled range attached to right
gable end has roof raised in artificial stone slates to front. Short gabled
range at right-angles to rear of main range. Interior. Not inspected at time of
resurvey (May 1987) but likely to be of interest.
