SE 06 NW
(west side)
2/23 The Count House
Former agents' office of Grassington Moor lead mines. Mid C19. Coursed
hammer-dressed gritstone built in diminishing courses, roofless at time of
resurvey. Single storey, 1 bay. Entrance on north side, right, with
voussoirs to round arch and blocked fanlight. Left return (to road): 2-
light window with flat-faced mullion and flush surround. Built of well-
dressed stone; the masonry is similar to that at Yarnbury Lodge (q.v.) and
probably dates from the period of high productivity at the mine which
peaked in 1853 when the population of Grassington was over 1000. The Count
House was probably the office where miners collected wages, the 2-light
window probably unglazed and the building replacing the office inside
Yarnbury House (q.v.)
