Riley (with tower and barn

- II

Farmstead with attached tower, 1834. Sandstone, house of watershot
coursing, remainder of rubble, roof of slates and some stone slates.
Roughly U-shaped plan. The only feature of interest is the west (rear)
facade which is roughly symmetrical with high embattled 2-stage tower
dominating the barn in the centre, which has a tall 2-centred arch with
a smaller pointed arched opening above. Each gabled wing has in the
apex a very large quatrefoil panel enclosing a small square window,
3 windows at ground floor and one at 1st floor, all in pointed arches.
History: Built by the manufacturing Hargreaves family in 1834, probably
as eye-catcher in view from Oak Hill (see Ainsworth Homesteads pp.24-27
and Mannex Directory Mid Lancs 1854 p.394).
