1/15 Lane House and
attached barn

House and barn. Mid -late C17 with late C18 extensions and alterations.
Coursed and uncoursed gritstone rubble, graduated stone slate roof. House
and barn built as one long range; house of 2 storeys and 3 bays with added
recessed bay to left, barn of 4 bays, with projecting gabled bay at east
end, forming an L plan. House main range: original doorway, new 6-pane
sash window to left, chamfered quoined jambs, the chamfer continued across
lintel as two arcs with initials "W B " in relief below. Inserted door to
right with tie-stone jambs and plain lintel. A 4- and a 3-light recessed
chamfered mullion window to ground floor, 2 mullions removed from left
window. Two 3-light windows of similar form but squatter to first floor.
Gable coping, end stack and ridge stack between bays 2 and 3. Recessed bay
to left: board door in plain surround on right; inserted window to left;
hollow-moulded kneelers, gable coping, end stack left. Barn: narrow C17
doorway to left with quoined jambs and lintel; wide barn entrance with
double board doors, lintel raised, flanked by lean-to C18 calf house and
stable, each with board door in plain surround and small square windows;
projecting bay on right has a chamfered quoined doorway with plain lintel.
5 vents or scaffolding holes and rectangular owl hole at apex of gable.
Rear facade (to road): the added west bay of house projects and has massive
quoins. Wide barn doorway with long and short quoins to jambs and
triangular head reduced to narrower entrance with plain surround, narrow
door to right. Small chamfered house windows, 2 to ground floor and one to
first floor. Left return (added bay): tall 3-light flat-faced mullion
windows to ground and first floors, reduced in height. Interior: house not
inspected at resurvey. Barn: 3 fine king-post trusses with longitudinal
braces to ridge and 2 tiers of trenched purlins seen at resurvey. A rare
survivor of a C17 small farmhouse range, the house and L-plan barn built
close to the road between Kildwick Grange and Silsden. The original lobby-
entry plan, with the door opening onto the side of a deep fireplace
(possibly surviving) and the byre doorway between the house and the barn.
C18 alterations to the plan included the addition of an entrance bay and an
inserted doorway to far right, with a second stack to serve more heated
rooms (possibly the house was divided between 2 generations or 2 separate
families). The barn was large with entrance for carts from the road, again
reduced to a narrow (?threshing) doorway in the C18 when further
accomodation for animals was added under outshuts on the south side. The
tall windows to the added bay suggest a purpose requiring extra light;
possibly this bay was added as a small weaving shed.
