6/87 Woodhead Farmhouse
Farmhouse, 1673. Thin coursed rubble with ashlar dressings, stone slate roof.
A lobby-entry house of 2 cells and an outshut (containing stairs) in addition
to a service end partly rebuilt. Two storeys. Front is of 4 bays. Two storey
gabled porch in 3rd bay divides the older part, with quoins and plinth, from rebuilt
C19 line of kitchen wall flush with porch. Double chamfered stone mullion windows
of 2 lights (probably formerly 4) -and 3 lights (probably formerly 5) to ground
floor, both with hoodmoulds. Similar of 2 lights over each, without hoodmoulds.
Ground floor windows may have been lengthened downwards. Porch has a similar
2-light window below and a C19 or restored 3-light chamfered mullioned window
above; a water spout well below eaves level may indicate that it has been increased
in height. The storeys of the porch are separated by an ogee-moulded string.
Triangular-headed doorway in the side, with moulded jambs, the lintel inscribed:
"Fear you S Lest you be cut
The Lord God P M off with the Sword"
between sword and fleur-de-lys carvings. Over this is a long devotional inscription.
Sides and rear have some other chamfered openings, and there is a stone sundial
on left hand gable. 4 chimneys.
Interior: The inner doorway has a lattice pattern cut into the lintel. The housebody
retains no visible features, but the parlour has a large stone fireplace with
elaborately carved foliage surrounding the characters "PS 1673". There are some
chamfered stone doorways on ground floor. On first floor is a large plastered
smoke hood over a former fireplace. The house was probably built by Peter
Scarborough of Kildwick Grange.
