GRANGE ROAD (south side)
Lane House and attached barn


House and barn. Mid to late C17 with late C18 extensions and alterations. Coursed and uncoursed gritstone rubble, graduated stone slate roof. House and barn built as one long range; house of two storeys and three bays with added recessed bay to left, barn of four bays, with projecting gabled bay at east end, forming an L plan.

House main range: original doorway, new six-pane sash window to left, chamfered quoined jambs, the chamfer continued across lintel as two arcs with initials "W B " in relief below. Inserted door to right with tie-stone jambs and plain lintel. A four and a three-light recessed chamfered mullion window to ground floor, two mullions removed from left window. Two three-light windows of similar form but squatter to first floor. Gable coping, end stack and ridge stack between bays two and three. Recessed bay to left: board door in plain surround on right; inserted window to left; hollow-moulded kneelers, gable coping, end stack left.

Barn: narrow C17 doorway to left with quoined jambs and lintel; wide barn entrance with double board doors, lintel raised, flanked by lean-to C18 calf house and stable, each with board door in plain surround and small square windows; projecting bay on right has a chamfered quoined doorway with plain lintel. Five vents or scaffolding holes and rectangular owl hole at apex of gable.

Rear facade (to road): the added west bay of house projects and has massive quoins. Wide barn doorway with long and short quoins to jambs and triangular head reduced to narrower entrance with plain surround, narrow door to right. Small chamfered house windows, two to ground floor and one to first floor. Left return (added bay): tall three-light flat-faced mullion windows to ground and first floors, reduced in height.

Interior: house not inspected at resurvey. Barn: three fine king-post trusses with longitudinal braces to ridge and two tiers of trenched purlins seen at resurvey. A rare survivor of a C17 small farmhouse range, the house and L-plan barn built close to the road between Kildwick Grange and Silsden. The original lobby-entry plan, with the door opening onto the side of a deep fireplace (possibly surviving) and the byre doorway between the house and the barn. C18 alterations to the plan included the addition of an entrance bay and an inserted doorway to far right, with a second stack to serve more heated rooms (possibly the house was divided between two generations or two separate families). The barn was large with entrance for carts from the road, again reduced to a narrow (?threshing) doorway in the C18 when further accommodation for animals was added under outshuts on the south side. The tall windows to the added bay suggest a purpose requiring extra light; possibly this bay was added as a small weaving shed.
