SD 91 SW LITTLEBOROUGH SYKE ROAD
(south side)
3/63 Barn, shippon and
workshop adjoining
- west of Syke House and
farmhouse

- II
Shippon, barn and former workshop. Early C19. Hammer-dressed
watershot stone with graduated stone slate roof. Barn and
shippon (left) were added to by 3 bays and 2 storeys and
again later by another bay. The barn has opposed segmental-
arched cart entries with keystones and a circular window
above. It is separated from the shippon door by a window
with round-arched head. The 3-bay workshop has a central
door with square-cut stone surround and segmental-arched
head flanked by windows with wedge lintels. The upper floor
and the gable feature to the central bay have semi-circular-
arched window openings with dropped keystones.The added bay
to right has a door on ground floor, a similar first floor
window and a hipped roof. The rear is treated similarly
except that there is no gable over the centre bay and the
door has a dressed surround. Walls and a cast-iron fence
enclose the front yard. It is unlikely that a building with
such architectural pretentions was built entirely for
farming purposes. The workshop was possibly built to
process limestone for farming and other purposes which could
have been brought from glacial deposits in the north in a
raw state. The cast-iron trough in the front enclosure may
have been a horse-powered lime press.
