5/125 No. 325 (Arrowsmith House)
- II*

House, dated 1700 on porch but substantially earlier. Whitewashed stone
with some brick, steeply pitched roof of corrugated sheet covering thatch
with boxed eaves, one ridge chimney and one gable chimney. Four-bay
baffle-entry plan, gable to road. Two storeys; irregular masonry with
plinth and quoins; 2-storey gabled porch at junction of 2nd and 3rd bays,
doorway offset to left, with hoodmould, moulded jambs and head, and at
lst floor a 2-light stone mullion window lettered on the head "17 + OO"
with a hoodmould above. Front windows are small, irregular and various,
but include to the left of the porch at ground floor 2 small square-
mullioned windows, of 3 and 2 lights, and at lst floor under the eaves a
similar window with 6 small lights; and, to the right, 4- and 2-light
wooden casements of unequal size, with a small 4-light casement under the
eaves. End and rear walls have other stone mullion windows: 3 at the left,
one at the right, and 2 at the back (one under the eaves) where there are
also various other windows and a rear porch with monopitched roof and side
door. Interior: exceptionally complete survival of original features,
including back-to-back inglenook fireplaces, ceiling beams, timber framed
partitions, doors, and spiral newel stair. History: a modern plaque over
the door states that according to tradition Saint Edmund Arrowsmith S.J.,
who was martyred at Lancaster in 1628, offered mass in this house. An
upper room is still used for this purpose.
