Farmhouse, formerly vicar's tower house. Probably early C14 with C18 and C19
additions. Tower has rubble and dressed red sandstone walls with chamfered
plinth, some stones of Roman origin from the nearby Roman Wall; C19 gabled slate
roof. C18 extension of brick, with extensive alterations and additions in
mid-C19 of dressed red sandstone, slate roof, brick chimney stacks. Tower of 2
storeys, single bay, has large projecting angle buttress to left (necessary
because of the steep fall of land on this side). Small square window to ground
floor, with C20 casement to left, small filled lancet with round head above.
right end wall has filled entrance, with chamfered and shouldered lintel.
Remains of newel staircase in thickness of wall. 2 storey, 3 bay extension to
right, has casements and sashes with glazing bars. Central projecting single
storey, single bay extensions with sloping slate roof. Entrance front looks
mid-c19, with slightly projecting end bay of the original tower. Projecting
porch/staircase has C20 glazed door. Small and large casements with glazing
bars. Built on a good defensive site next to the medieval church. Listing does
not include the other farm buildings. See Transactions, Cumberland &
