Farmhouse with attached farm buildings. Probably late C17, with C18 and later
alterations. Red brick in English garden wall bond, pantile roof. H-plan with
later additions. 2 storeys. South elevation: 1:3:1 bays, the outer bays being
gabled wings projecting forward. First-floor band of 5 brick courses, the top
one oversailing more, to front and return sides but not returning along inner
sides of wings. Centre 3 bays: on ground floor, central C20 French window
flanked by C20 16-pane sashes with soldier brick arches, on first floor, central
16-pane sash flanked by sash windows with glazing bars, all with C20 brick
lintels. Left wing: on each floor a 4-pane sash window with exposed sash box,
the ground-floor window blind, and both windows without lintels. Right wing: on
each floor a C20 16-pane sash with soldier brick arch. Both wings have sand-
stone ashlar cyma reversa kneelers and chamfered ashlar coping. Stacks with
stepped tabling at inner junctions of wings. Left return (left wing now disused
loose boxes etc): on ground floor, 4 board stable doors with overlights, and
above them on first floor, 4-pane and part-shuttered windows. Right return: on
ground floor from left, two 16-pane sash windows; two French windows; on first
floor, two 16-pane sashes; sash window with glazing bars, 16-pane sash; a stack
between the 3rd and 4th bays. At the rear, the space between the wings has been
filled by a later office range,now with C20 openings and not of special
interest, leaving a small courtyard, from which can be seen some side-sliding
sash windows in the rear of the central range. The right wing has been extended
to the rear with a range which is not of special interest. Interior: the plan
has been altered and many internal partitions removed, but C18 pine doors of 6
fielded panels remain. In the right wing is a C17 beam with ovolo chamfer, ogee
stopped. Pine staircase with turned balusters, alternate ones removed. The
house is probably on the site of Angram Grange, which belonged to Byland Abbey.
Here was a Mass Centre, used by the Roman Catholic Viscounts Faucenberg, of
Newburgh Priory (qv) for recusant worship. W I Howard, Hide or Hang-Priest
Holes of North East England, Dalesman 1966; VCH ii, pp.14-15.
