2/7 The Red House
House, now school. 1864 with C17 origins and C20 additions. Originally
built for Slingsby family. Brick in English bond, ashlar dressings,
Westmorland slate roof. Main facade: 2 storeys and attics, 8 bays.
Outermost and third bays break forward and are gabled. 3 massive external
stacks,and quoins to all angles. Tudor-arched half-glazed door in square-
headed frame to third bay. Small round-headed window to first bay. All
other bays have 2-light transomed fixed windows except full-length
tripartite transomed window to right bay with stepped Tudor-arched lower
lights. First-floor band. Small round-arched window to left bay and
single-light transomed window to second bay. Stepped 3-light transomed
window to third bay and 2-light transomed windows to all other bays.
Attics: single-light windows to outer bays, cruciform mock arrow slit to
third bay. Flat-topped casement dormers to fourth, sixth and seventh bays.
Gable coping, shaped kneelers and right end stack. Right gable end largely
of 2" bricks suggesting that the facade is built round an earlier C17 house.
Interior: early C18 panelling in central bedroom, some door-frames and the
decorative cornice to the dining room may be original features of an earlier
house otherwise completely re-fitted in 1864.
