9/132 Darnbrook House


- II

House. Dated 1664, restored C19. Gritstone rubble, graduated grey slates
to roof front, stone slates to rear. 2 storeys, 3 bays, with single-storey
porch between bays 2 and 3 and a lobby entry plan; a 2-storey, 2-bay added
range with parallel roof to rear bays 1 and 2. Quoins. The porch entrance
has a flat lintel and stone benches; the inner board door is in a deeply
chamfered and slightly cambered archway. A restored square window under
hoodmould, with plain surround and C20 frame to ground floor, bay 1;
otherwise recessed chamfered mullion windows throughout, of 4 and 5 lights
with hoodmoulds flanking the porch; of 2,3 (now 2) and 2 lights to first
floor. Very large corniced ashlar stack to ridge above porch; smaller
ridge stack-far left. Interior: A drawbar survives inside the main
entrance door. A dated lintel, possibly repositioned, with raised
lettering, " I B 1674 M B",is in the opening between the front and rear
ranges of the house. Unless it is repositioned it appears to date the
addition of the 2 rooms, probably service or store rooms. The initials are
of John Buck and his wife, whose family tenanted the farm from Fountains
Abbey and bought it after the Dissolution. A. Raistrick, Malham and Malham
Moor, 1974 (reprinted 1983), p. 102
