Ladywell Cottage
Small house. Early - mid C17. Gritstone rubble, Welsh slate roof. 2
storeys with attic, 2x1 bays. Quoins. Entrance into single-storey C20
range to left, not of special interest. West front: 4-light window with
recessed chamfered straight-cut mullions to ground floor, a 3-and 2-light
window to first floor with hollow mouldings to mullions, all have
hoodmoulds. End stack left; weathered kneelers with gable coping to right.
Rear: single-storey added range has C19 glazed door and a square chamfered
window to left. Left return: slates indicate the wall line and pitch of
an earlier range, now demolished. Right return: recessed chamfered
mullion windows of 4, 3 and 2 lights, one to each floor; the first-floor
window has a tall central light; all have hoodmoulds. Interior not
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.
