- II

Farmhouse. Dated 1703 and 1748, with mid-C19 refenestration and reroofing.
Coursed gritstone rubble, graduated grey slate roof, stone slates to rear.
2 storeys, 3 x 1½ bays. Quoins. C20 doors and window frames throughout.
The main entrance between bays 2 and 3 has plain jambs, entablature and
moulded cornice; the service door, bay 1, has a sawn stone surround and
there is a large 4-light flat-faced mullion window to left. The remaining
windows are all large, those to the ground floor being almost full height,
and have sawn stone surrounds. Shaped kneelers and gable copings; end
stack and one to ridge between bays 1 and 2. A reset date plaque above the
main entrance has the letters " F " above the date "1748" in a moulded
surround, the "F" flanked by stylised leaf and berry motifs. Rear: a
narrow stair window with single transom to left of centre; one 2-light
recessed chamfered mullion window, another window with reused C17 surround,
the remainder flat-faced mullion windows. Right return: chamfered quoined
jambs to doorway, right of centre, the lintel having 2 inscribed plaques,
one dated "1703" above the letters, "A B". The masonry of the gable end
indicates the refronting of the house and the earlier roof pitch.
Interior: main entrance into a narrow hallway with inserted partition left
and a solid wall, right. Stairs at end of hall of 2 straight flights have
double baluster of C17 form and a moulded handrail. The left bay
contains one original kitchen and dairy with slate shelves. Large slate
flags have been used to floor the house, and a C19 staircase has post and
slate partition. The house was probably built by a member of the Foster
family, probably the father of Thomas Foster of Nether Heselden (1743-1770)
who was buried at Arncliffe Church. On the site was a farm belonging to
Fountains Abbey before the Dissolution. T.D, Whitaker, History of Craven,
1805, 1878, republished 1973, p.573.
