House. Mid C18 with C19 and C20 alterations. Rendered, purple slates,
stone foundations. 2 storeys, 3 bays with rear outshut and wing. A 6-panel
door between bays 1 and 2; restored 16-pane windows in flush wood
architraves. End stacks. Interior: the door opens into a narrow hall-
passage with C18 moulded ceiling cornice and round arch. The central room
has a chamfered spine beam; the partition wall between central and third bay
removed in mid C20 and the fine built-in cupboards which formed part of the
walling were repositioned against the hall-passage wall. The cupboards have
a central double-door unit of 6 fielded panels, drawers beneath. The doors
cover curved display shelves and are flanked by further cupboard and drawer
units. Bay 3: a cyma stop to chamfered ceiling beam. A plaque over the
front door (erected c1980) records that Mary Ward was born at Mulwith in
1585. She founded a Roman Catholic order of nuns which she intended to be
the first active and unenclosed Order in the church's history. Her small
community visited Mulwith or Newby before settling at Heworth near York.
