Postgate Farmhouse and attached outbuildings




Farmhouse and outbuildings, some now residential; 1784 dated on keystone with initials
T & A B. Coursed, herringbone-tooled sandstone; pantiled roof with
stone ridge, stacks, copings and kneelers; purple slates on rear
outbuilding span. Two storeys, eight bays in all, slightly irregular, in
three builds: partial rebuilding with hearth-passage plan. Main door,
to right of wide 2-bay left section, C20 half-glazed, well recessed
under lintel with dated key, beneath a round arch with cut voussoirs.
Modern casement to right and two late C19 sashes above. 1-bay extreme
right section has two C20 pivoted casements. Plinth along rest of
house. At left of doorway a small fire window, then on ground floor
a 3-light Yorkshire sash under an extended lintel with tooled-and-
margined stepped keystone; above it a paired sash window with
glazing bars under similar lintel. Outbuilding continues to left,
a different build but similar: three stable doors and vent slits. Three
stepped and corniced chimneys, at ends of house and behind entrance
passage. Gable copings with square kneelers. Short rear span,
mainly outbuilding, with one tripartite sash (with central opening
section) and a small square opening to right of a first-floor door
up stone steps. Central gabled stair extension has a window
with fancy lintel and keystone, similar to those on front.

Interior not inspected but R.C.H.M. illustrates a stone fireplace
with corniced and dentilled shelf above, and heck partition. A
witch-post, now removed from the end of the heck, was dated 1664.

R.C.H.M. op.cit. pp. 170,179,218,227.
