Gill Bottom


Farmhouse, later C17 or early C18, and 3 cottages, C19, all now unoccupied and used as
farm buildings. Hammer dressed stone with stone slate roof. Two storeys. The
farmhouse appears to be of 2 units at the front but there is no break in the masonry
to its left, so that the contiguous cottage (which has no C19 openings) may be adapted
from its lower end; that to the right shares with the farmhouse a large C17 outshut at
the rear. The farmhouse has a string extending over 2 doors of C19 type and that of
the third cottage. Double chamfered mullion windows of 3 lights (now 2) and perhaps
3 lights (lacking a mullion) to ground floor, and of 4 lights (lacking outer mullions)
above the latter. Other openings C19. At rear are other chamfered mullion windows of
2 lights. Interior not accessible at time of survey.
A substantial farmhouse said to have been extended to provide accommodation for a
nearby mill, now demolihed.
