2/89 Elmhirst Farmhouse
and Cottage
(formerly listed as

Worsbrough Dale)
- II
Farmhouse now 2 dwellings. Probably late C17 with earlier core, much altered.
Coursed rubble sandstone, C20 cement-tile roof. Elongated 2-storey range,
6 windows to 1st floor, partial outshut to rear. Large quoins. Original
house-part on left has part-glazed door in quoined surround flanked by 3-light
casements with quoined reveals, 2-light window on right has recessed mullion.
Converted outbuilding under same roof on right has large 16-pane sash, C20
3-light mullioned window and C20 French window. 1st floor: all 2-light
horizontally-sliding sashes in quoined openings, small window over door on left.
Shaped kneelers, chamferd gable copings, 2 ridge stacks each with band.
Rear: arched doorway on left possibly of early date, some sash windows.
Interior: cruck truss exposed in partition wall between the 2 dwellings has wall
spurs set below tie beam which is morticed for infill, collar beneath cruck ends
clasping remains of diagonally-set ridge now much lower than present roofline.
The truss and long-house form of the building suggest a late medieval date for
the original structure. Ancestral home of the Elmhirst family.
