23.6.1965 (formerly listed as Higher Side Beet
- II with attached outbuilding)

Farmhouse, formerly known as Higher Sidebight, dated 1699 (said to be
date of restoration); several builds. Sandstone blocks and coursed
sandstone rubble with quoins, slate roof with ridge chimney at junction
of 2nd and 3rd bays. Three bays and 2 storeys, with C19 wing to rear of
1st bay. Front wall has 4 diminishing courses of large stone blocks at
the base (interrupted between 2nd and 3rd bays); present front door in
2nd bay has small modern brick porch with an old stone lintel lettered in
the centre HMG; to left of this porch are a 2-light mullioned stairlight
and a 4-light mullioned window (lacking 2 mullions), both with hoodmoulds;
to right of it a large altered window (with hoodmould) and a doorway
breaking a hoodmould, between which the masonry suggests original position
of a door with gabled porch. At 1st floor under eaves 3 small windows
originally mullioned, now altered. Rear has altered or blocked openings,
including blocked 2-light mullioned window. Interior not seen.
