(west side, off)
15/71 Yew Tree Farmhouse
House. Dated 1670, late C18-early C19 alterations. Gritstone rubble,
graduated stone slate roof. 2 storeys, 2 bays. Quoins. C20 board door to
far left, in a moulded quoined surround, the moulding carried over the
triangular doorhead. A recessed plaque to lintel with evenly spaced raised
letters, "1670 C B". Recessed chamfered mullion windows throughout, of 6
and 7 lights to ground floor, of 4 and 3 lights above. A central king
mullion to the left window on each floor, and a continuous string course at
first-floor level. Corniced ashlar stack to right. Interior not inspected
at resurvey. The 1670 stack was probably opposite the entrance, this being
altered when the house was reroofed. The carved detail and architectural
elements of king mullions and string course are particularly fine for so
small a house.
