Fortified house, known as 'The Bastle' and now used as a workshop. Probably
C16. Random rubble with dressed stone quoins. 2 storeys. Rectangular c.60 x
25 ft. Blocked ground-floor doorway with alternating-block surround under
relieving arch on long north side. On the same side two blocked small square
windows. Steeply-pitched gabled roof with crow steps on west, reverse crow
steps on east. 1st-floor entrance was originally on east gable (of Akeld
Bastle), now replaced by C20 sliding door. In the gable a square-chamfered
window, formerly with a mullion, rebated for shutters. Similar window in
west gable. Later lean-tos on south side.
Interior: walls c. 4 ft. 6 inches thick. Only part of the ground floor
tunnel vault remains. It is high and round. The eaves appear unaltered
which suggests that the 1st floor had very low side walls. Roof timbers C19.
