Farm outbuilding east-south-east of High Birks Farmhouse
Farm outbuilding. Dated 1853, with minor C20 alterations. Rubble water-shot Lakeland-stone walling, with limestone quoining and dressings, and a Westmorland slate roof laid
to diminishing courses. Bank barn type of linear form with substantial rear outshots
flanking upper side entry. 2-storey with overlofts to outshots, five bays with central access on high side (north) to threshing and winnowing floor and fodder storage. South
elevation with shallow ground floor canopy extending the full length of the building,
supported on long stone canopy corbels (mostly now failing). Four single doorways and a cart entry together with a single small square window at the west end. Only the east end doorway and the window are undisturbed; the other openings having been modified to form additional windows. Central first floor winnowing doorway beneath deep lintel with inscribed date stone above which reads J.C. 1853'. Tier of slit breathers below projecting eaves supported on moulded stone corbels. East and west side elevations altered, but with stable doorways and windows beneath single massive lintels and with loft doors above. The rear outshots are entered through side doors beneath a canopy which shelters the double doorway to the winnowing floor. One of the largest of the surviving C19 bank barns in the Lake District.
