fireplaces and timberwork. First floor as well as ground floor main rooms
(hall and 2 parlours) were heated, and the surviving timberwork includes:
partitions of post and panel construction, panelling to small room to left
of entrance hall and in upper rooms (concealed by wallpaper), original board
doors, some with carved mouldings; 2 sets of stairs: a main set of 2
straight flights with slender moulded balusters in the rear wing, and a
straight flight behind the kitchen (far left) with balusters of a more
heavily-moulded form. The remains of a carved frieze survives on these
stairs. Large chamfered beams support floors, and the roof is carried by 5
large upper cruck trusses, the blades set into the walls and each pair
linked by a tenoned collar allowing maximum headroom to former storage or
sleeping accommodation in the attic. B Jennings (Ed), A History of
Nidderdale, 1967, pp 477-9 etc. North Yorkshire and Cleveland Vernacular
