4/21 Hookstone Garth
(formerly listed as
15.3.66 'Hookstone School Farmhouse')


House. Dated 1692 possibly with earlier origins. Coursed gritstone rubble,
grey slate roof. 2 storeys, 4 bays. End lobby-entry plan. Quoins.
Blocked original door far right now contains a 2-light window. Cyma-moulded
jambs and a shallow triangular soffit to the lintel with incised scrolls in
the spandrels and a recessed panel with the letters "GSB 1692" in relief.
An inserted door to bay 2; recessed chamfered mullion windows throughout but
with varied details: bays 1 and 3, ground-floor windows are of 3 lights,
short and deeply recessed. First floor: 3-light window to bay 1 with a
deep bolection moulded architrave; 2-light window above present door; 3-
light window to bay 3 only slightly recessed and with segmental-headed
lights. Bay 4, first floor has a single-light window with deep architrave
similar to that in bay 1. A continuous dripmould at first-floor level is
stepped up over the doorways. Corniced stack to left; banded stack to
right. The eaves have been raised by 2 courses, probably when the house was
reslated. Rear, left to right, ground floor: rectangular chamfered window,
paired segmental-headed lights, an inserted 2-light window. First floor,
left: 3-light window in architrave, the central light segmental headed.
Interior not inspected at resurvey. The varied fenestration indicates a
long and important structural history.
