(east side)
9/111 Nos. 1 (the Old Post
Office), 2 and 3.
Row of 3 houses. C17, No. 1 dated 1651, with mid C18 and late C19
alterations. Gritstone, graduated stone slate roof. 2 storeys, 5 first-
floor windows. Quoins. The facade is divided down the centre by a row of quoins
dividing the right-hand pair of houses (Nos. 2 and 3) from the left. Left
range: board door in narrow quoined opening with 3-centred head and " W
1651 H" in raised letters. A 3-light flat-faced mullion window to left on
ground and first floors; a 6-pane shop window built into a blocked quoined
segmental-arched cart entrance and a 4-pane sash left again to ground floor
and two 4-pane sashes above. Range to right: a mirrored pair of cottages
with board doors in plain surrounds with large lintels to left and right,
two 3-light flat-faced mullion windows between, on each floor. Stone
gutter brackets overall, 4 ridge stacks: to left of the mullion windows; in
line with the division between Nos. 1 and 2; between Nos. 2 and 3; and to
right gable. Interior not inspected at resurvey. Nos. 2 and 3 were
probably the C17 farmhouse, and No. 1 a barn and byre range, dated 1651 and
possibly built by a member of the Hewitt or Hammond families, major
landowners in Threshfield in the C17. The division of the property into 3
cottages in the C18 corresponds with the need for accomodation for miners
from Grassington at that time. A. Raistrick, Old Yorkshire Dales, 1967,
