House, now sheep shelter. Dated 1673 with C18 alterations. Gritstone
rubble, graduated stone slate roof. 1½ storeys, 3 bays with central outshut

semicircular stair turret, centre, with a pierced stone circular window. 3
narrow low chamfered windows, 2 to left and 1 to right of the stair turret.

lights the stone newel staircase at step level. Derelict at the time of
