6/134 Old House, including
- outbuilding at north west
- II
House. C17 or earlier, considerably altered in C20 with C20 wing. Rendered rubble
walls. Gable-ended asbestos slate roof. 2 rendered rubble stacks - one to left
gable end and one large projecting lateral stack at front. Originally 3-room and
through passage plan, lower room probably to the left. Hall heated by front
lateralstack and right gable end stack probably heated lower room although the
position of the original passage is unclear. C20 1-room wing added at rear of
right-hand end. C19/C20 rear outshut behind left-hand end. 2 storeys. Asym-
metrical 4-window front. Ground and first floor left-hand windows are late C20
3 and 2-light casements with 'leaded' panes. Otherwise 2 and 3-light irregularly
spaced C20 casements with small panes except for ground floor left of centre which
is C17 2-light wood mullion, chamfered on the inside, with leaded panes in poor
condition and iron stanchion bars. The stack projects to its right. Interior: much
altered but contains several chamfered cross beams with indistinct stops. Fire-
place to lateral stack has had lintel replaced, gable-end fireplace has chamfered
wood lintel with ogee stops. Roof space not inspected. Including the outbuilding
at the north west end. Probably C17 or early C18. Local limestone rubble.
Corrugated iron roof with gabled ends. Large limestone rubble lateral stack on the
front and a projecting right hand gable end stack. Plan: Rectangular single depth
plan, probably originally 2 rooms, the left hand (south east) room heated from a
front lateral stack and the right hand room (north west) has a gable end stack.
There is a 2 storey projection on the front wall of the right hand part of unknown
purpose. The building is now one large room again to the roof. Exterior:
originally 2 storeys. The north east front has a projecting lateral stack to the
left and the front to the right breaks forward; in between there are 2 C20 plank
doors and a blocked first floor window above. The rear wall is blind. Interior:
all the internal partitions and floor have been removed and it is open to the late
C19 soft-wood roof trusses. The front lateral stack has a cambered arched first
floor fireplace and its ground floor fireplace has missing lintel or fallen arch.
The right hand gable end fireplace also have cambered arches. It is said to have
been a row of almhouses at one time, 2 of the almhouses in Old House and the other
2 in the outbuilding adjoining north west. Old House was possibly originally the
church house and later extended and used as almhouses (the outbuilding to the north
west being the extension).
