(south side)

8/212 No 18 (Castle Mill

House. Early C19. Gritstone, Westmorland slate roof. 4 storeys, 1 room to
each floor. Main facade (south): C20 extension projects forward on left;
flight of stone steps against main building to reach first-floor entrance in
right return. Main building has 3 tiers of 2-light windows with C20
casements and stepped hoodmoulds. Chimney to right. Rear (road side): a
C20 window inserted in ground floor. Left return: blocked arched opening
into ground floor or basement, now partly concealed by roadway. Tall
blocked opening with stone lintel to first floor. Second and third (attic)
floors: small 2-pane (second floor) and 1-pane (third floor) window both
with projecting sills and large lintels. Inturned kneelers. Right return:
narrow but substantial external stack. The character of this building
suggests that it may have been built as a small school house after the 1833
Factory Act. The proprietor of Castle Mill, John Vipont, then agreed to
provide a school to take children under 13 on 2-hour shifts during the day.
