SE 59 NE
16/22 Former house to
west of Low
Part of house, now used as workshop attached at north end of later
barn. Probably circa 1600 with alterations circa 1700 and later.
Roughly-tooled squared sandstone, with smaller stones above, in
right bay; more evenly-coursed in left bay (probably part of c.1700
changes). Pantiled roof with stone coping, kneelers and stack.
1 storey and loft, 2 bays, irregular. Small fire window at right,
small window at left and another above it. Entrance on right gable
end; boarded door with small Yorkshire sash to left and blocked
chamfered window above. Corniced end chimney.
Interior: bays divided by a full cruck truss with "type C" apex
(high saddle) fairly low collar and low tie from which the cut-off
joists of the original first floor project. A buttress on the
opposite (south) wall may have supported the floor. In the same
wall an inset trough and a cupboard recess. The cruck truss has
been underbuilt in stone at some later date, making a complete
division between the two bays. The north bay shows the original
chamfered beam of the open fire area, and chamfered joists. Within
the fire area is a handsome moulded stone fireplace of circa 1700.
