Interior, main range: 2 fine C17 fireplaces; that in the central living-

imitation of joggled voussoirs; that in the well-lit parlour to right has a
large cambered arch supported by corbelled jambs. In the porch the
original staircase with short knopped balusters, probably restored or
reset in C19. The 3-bay C17 house with 2 fine fireplaces and staircase-
porch was almost completely rebuilt in the C19, the high ceilings to ground
and first floors suggesting replacement of all interior timberwork. The
rear range contains a kitchen and dairy with service rooms above, probably
occupied by the tennants while the Dawsons, whose main house was probably
at Langcliffe, used the main range for shooting parties and summer
