Dimple Farmhouse


Range of fom1er fam1 outbuildings now stores. Mid C17 and early C18, with late C20 alterations. Coursed squared gritstone, the earlier part evenly coursed. Stone slate, Welsh slate and blue tile roof coverings, the earlier part with stone copings to gables. 'L' shaped range, the earlier part aligned north-south, the later part at right angles to it. Earlier range of 3 bays, without overlofts but with taking-in door to north gable. Altered central full-height doorway to courtyard elevation, now with C20 sliding door gear. Rear side wall with altered and blocked central opening, with later inserted opening to far right. INTERIOR: 3-bay double purlin roof supported by 2 queen strut trusses with collars and ties, trenched purlins and diagonally-set ridge purlin. Longitudinal wind bracing to centre bay. Later range of 5 bays, with large inserted double doorway to east gable, and C20 lean-to to north side wall. INTERIOR: single purlin roof supported on 3 collar and tie beam trusses, with some longitudinal bracing. 2 bays to west end are replacements. The outbuilding range was functionally related to the farmhouse, and forms the most important element of its setting. It contributes to an understanding of the function of the building group, and displays many of the distinctive characteristics of the region's vernacular building traditions.
