West side

6/33 Crag House and
barn attached


Farmhouse and barn, probably originally a longhouse, of early C18,
greatly altered 1770 (dated on door lintel, for William and Mary
Hartas) and said to have been partly rebuilt in 1790 after a fire.
Coursed tooled sandstone; pantiled roof (installed 1790 and said to
be the first pantiled roof in the dale). Through-passage plan with
rear extensions forming reversed U-shape.

Two storeys and attic. 2 bays at right and 2 wider bays at left of
passage door with dated lintel. Wide 3-light windows at right have
lost mullions but retain roll-moulded keyed lintels, jambs with
impost and plinth blocks,and projecting cills. At left of door a
3-light chamfered stone-mullioned window and a small boarded loft
door above. Extreme left bay (one storey only) is a barn with
Tudor-arched doorway at right, steps up to boarded loft door at
left. Appearance suggests that house has been reversed; barn/byre
was originally at right of through-passage door and the bay on its
left was the house-place.

Stone ridge, copings and moulded kneelers. Corniced stacks at ends
of house part and on ridge.

Rear elevation shows 2-stage plinth and scattered small C20 casements.
Lower left domestic extension has remains of a 2-light chamfered
mullion window. Right barn extension now roofed in corrugated

Interior shows original door from cross-passage, fire beams in
rooms on both floors, the lower with a panelled spice cupboard,
and C18 moulded joists in several rooms.
