Old Hall Farmhouse)


Stable and outbuilding range with hayloft over. Early-mid C18 and early-mid
C19 enclosing the remains of a C16 structure, possibly a barn. Coursed
squared limestone rubble and timber framing, pantile roof with eaves course
of stone slates. 2 storeys, 8 bays with outshut on west side, and
additional 2 bays to north. Board stable doors to centre and each end, and
another door to left of added bays. Those to main range have timber
lintels; that to north block has a segmental header-brick arch. 2 blocked
ground-floor doorways and an inserted small-paned window to bay 1. 2 square
loading doors to first floor, main range and 5 slit vents. The added 2
bays have 2 X-shaped cast-iron ties at first-floor level. Left return:
rebuilt stone stair to board door with 3-piece keyed lintel. Interior, main
range: the west aisle has 4 principal posts, 3 surviving complete on
padstones and one top section surviving with curved braces to an aisle plate
and straight braces to tie beams. On the east side of the building the tie
beams are resting on the top of the corresponding principals but the lower
parts of these posts are built into the stone walling. The roof structure
of struts and rafters is nailed and probably C19. The timbering of the
flooring is composed of cross-beams fastened into the thickened upright
posts. The building was possibly a barn in its original form, but it could
have been a stable or byre range with lofts over. North Yorkshire and
