2/28 The Smithy
Smithy, now house. Late C18 - early C19, converted mid C20. Gritstone
rubble, graduated stone slate roof. 1 1/2 storeys, 2 bays. Irregular quoins.
South front has glazed double doors recessed in the probably original cart
entrance which has irregularly quoined jambs and single-block lintel.
Square C20 frame to window right of centre, the opening has poorly shaped
sill and lintel, but no jambs; a similar window below eaves to right, above
a blocked opening probably a doorway. Restored kneelers, gable copings,
end stacks. Lean-to to right not of special interest. A poorly-built but
very important building in the lead mining complex, as by the early C19
hundreds of ponies were used to haul ore from the mines and packhorses
carried the ore to Gargrave, Skipton, Pateley Bridge and beyond. The west
end of the walling appears to have been rebuilt at conversion.
