SD 48 NE HELSINGTON

3/10 Holeslack

II

House, C17 with later alterations and additions. Rendered walls. Graduated
slate roof. 3 chimney stacks; left has single round shaft, right paired round
shafts both C19. Central round stack larger and probably original. L-shaped
plan with later extension to right. Gabled porch with finial, one sash window
to left, 3 to right. 5 sash windows to upper floor. The R.C.H.M. suggests that
the house was originally the dower house for Sizergh Castle, but this is not
borne out by any records, and Nicholson (Joseph) and Burn (Richard), The History
and Antiquities of the Counties of Westmorland and Cumberland, Volume I, record
the owner in 1726 as John Jackson (gentleman) the founder of the Chapel of
Helsington.
