storeys with attic, 2x1 bays. Quoins. Entrance into single-storey C20
range to left, not of special interest. West front: 4-light window with

hoodmoulds. End stack left; weathered kneelers with gable coping to right.
Rear: single-storey added range has C19 glazed door and a square chamfered

inspected at resurvey. The house stands near the site of a spring known as
Our Lady's Well, a few yards from the river. Water from it was said to
strengthen weak eyes and remove evil spirits. The formerly adjoining
steep-roofed building was probably cruck-built, and the existing bay added
to it in the C17. A. Speight, Upper Wharfedale 1900, p444.
