House. Mid - late C17 with late C18 sub-division and re-roofing. Coursed
gritstone rubble, graduated stone slate roof. 2 storeys, 4 bays, one room
deep, lobby-entry plan. Quoins, plinth. Entrance between bays 1 and 2:
chamfered quoined jambs and cambered lintel; blocked chamfered round-headed
light above. Chamfered mullion windows, most having a mullion removed and
another repositioned. Ground floor, left to right: bay 1 - 3 lights, now
2 lights; bay 2: a blocked inserted doorway with tie-stone jambs, now a
window, square window to left; bay 3: 3 reduced to 2 lights, with a blocked
inserted doorway to right; bay 4: square window. First floor: bay 1 -
3, now 2 lights, bay 2 - 4, now 2 lights; bay 3 - square window; bay 4 -
3, now 2 lights. Shaped kneelers and gable copings; banded stack opposite
entrance and at right gable end. Rear: a blocked first-floor door to bay 2.
Interior: large back-to-back fireplaces opposite the entrance; stone
staircase against rear wall, bay 3. The house appears to have been built as
a single dwelling combining living accommodation and farm storage; it was
divided into 3 cottages in the late C18 when the 2 doors were inserted and
alterations were made to the mullion windows to allow in more light.
Probably at the same time, or a little later, the eaves were raised and a
new roof structure and chimneys were built. In process of restoration at
time of resurvey.
