II

Building of uncertain former purpose, now shippon and store, but perhaps a
wing of the former farmhouse (dated 1589) which was taken down in the mid
C19 (Fishwick). Partly handmade brick on a high plinth of watershot
sandstone, partly random rubble with quoins, and partly modern brick; tiled
roof, with stone gable copings which have obelisk finials. Rectangular
plan of approximately 3 bays. Two storeys; south gable of old brick has a
large blocked 4-light mullioned window with hoodmould on each
floor, the surrounds rendered; west side has 3 chamfered Tudor-arched
doorways, the first 2 coupled but of unequal height, and the 3rd altered as
a window, and above the middle door a square door; north gable has 3 linked
similar doorways at ground floor, (the first covered by tanks etc., the
centre blocked by a flight of steps at right angles to the wall), and a
door at the top of the steps with a window to the right of it. The east
side wall is mostly modern brick, but old brick at the north east corner
appears to have been linked with remains of similar masonry continuing to
the east under a lean-to shed. Interior not of special interest. History:
said to have been used as a chapel; in C16 and C17 was property of the
Helme family (John Helme, priest 1478; John Helme, curate in Goosnargh
1583); old house, dated 1589, taken down "a few years ago" (Fishwick
Goosnargh, 1871, p.184).
