SE 26 SW (south side, off)

9/79 Hardcastle Garth
- II

House and cross wing, now 2 houses. Dated 1666 and 1703. For members of
the Hardcastle family. Coursed squared gritstone, graduated stone slate
roofs. The 2 houses form an L-plan: the northern house being earlier and of
2 storeys and 3 bays with probably lobby-entry plan, and the west wing of 2
storeys and 3 bays but an end stack plan. Both have plinth and quoins.
Northern house: studded board door to right of centre bay in moulded quoined
surround with deep lintel cut to shallow Tudor-style arch on which the
inscription 'I 1666 H' is cut in raised letters on a 3-part panel. Far
left: probably a 4-light recessed-chamfered mullion window, converted to a
door mid C18 and reformed as a window C19 or C20. 4- and 3-light recessed-
chamfered mullion windows flank door; 3 similar 3-light windows to first
floor and single-light trefoil-headed window above door. Continuous
hoodmould over ground-floor windows with label stop to right; left end
obscured by later attached wing. Large ridge stack above door, stepped
external stack to left gable, end stack right. West wing, east front:
centred half-glazed 4-panel door under 4-central pointed arch w:Lth cyma
moulding to lintel and jambs. Incised inscription on lintel: ' H '
Door flanked by 4-light (now 3-light) double-chamfered mullion windows.
Three 2-light windows to first floor, mullions removed; central window
probably inserted, far right formerly of 3 lights. Continuous hoodmould to
ground floor. Shaped kneelers, gable coping, corniced end stacks. Interior
not inspected at resurvey. The later house was probably built as a wing of
the 1666 house, the service rooms being only in the earlier house, with
internal access between. B Jennings (Ed), A History of Nidderdale, 1867, p
