House and wall. Early-mid C19. Part of the estate village of Sir
William Amcotts Ingilby. Coursed squared gritstone, Westmorland slate roof.

metres high and 10 metres long to left again. House: in Gothick style.

heads; interlaced glazing bars to pointed overlight; pointed-arched door-
head with a double chamfer decorated with flower heads in relief; the
chamfers terminating in shields with the Ingilby star in relief at impost
level. All windows have pointed sashes with interlaced glazing bars; the 2-

used the flower motifs, Ingilby star, 2-piece lintels and window form from
the pedestrian entrance to the gatehouse and the windows of the north
(coach-house) range of the castle for several houses in the village: Vale
Lodge is identical, Birchwood Farmhouse and Horngarth differ only in the
chimney positions and Star House and Cottage is built to the same design.
