13/133 Low Row, the southern
of the two former houses


House, now byre. Late C17 altered probably in 2nd quarter of C18. Rubble
with stone dressings, stone slate roof. 3 storeys, 2 wide bays. Off-centre
inserted doorway with overlight between former 2-light chamfered mullioned
windows, now blocked. 3-light chamfered mullioned window with old iron bars,
and single-light window in chamfered surround, to 1st floor. 2nd floor has
2 single-light windows in chamfered surrounds. The 3-light window and the 2nd
floor windows have horizontally-tooled dressings. Left return shows central
ground floor door with chamfered surround, with corbels above for former
projecting stack. Rear elevation shows central boarded door at 1st floor
level with chamfered surround,and chamfer-surround window to left, both with
horizontally-tooled dressings. Inserted door to right. Interior; original
ground-floor doorway in south wall, now opening into adjacent barn, has
chamfered surround and drawbar tunnel. 1st floor has been of stone flags
carried on transverse beams, and has C18 fireplaces against end walls.

The house shows some bastle-like features but has relatively thin walls,c.f.
Bunkershill and Windy Hall near Alston. (Ramm, McDowall & Mercer,'Shielings
and Bastles' HMSO 1970, 74-5). The relatively large ground-floor windows
suggest an early basement function other than as a byre.
