8/9 Range of-buildings to
north-west of Monk
Farmhouse
GV
II

Range of buildings, formerly partly domestic. C16/C17, perhaps incorporating
earlier fabric, with later alterations. Rubble, heavy quoins, stone dressings
to some openings. North-west slope of roof stone flags, south-east slope
slate. Both external elevations and internal walls show a variety of openings,
some blocked, of different dates, including a number of doorways with monolithic
flat-pointed or round-arched heads. One internal wall towards the south-west
end of the range has a blocked door with a 2-centred pointed arch. The north-
east gable has a blocked central door with a monolithic flat-pointed head and
is capped by a square dovecote carried on a row of 4 corbels, with a pyramidal
stone slate roof. The dovecote is a later adaptation of a large stack, the
massive lintel of the 1st floor fireplace remaining visible internally.
Monk Farm is traditionally said to be a medieval property of Hexham Priory.
The range of buildings preserves a number of features of bastle house type.
