Farmhouse and attached shippon. Probably C17. Stone rubble. Rag slate roof with
gable ends. Stone rubble axial stack to right of centre and brick shaft to
projecting stone rubble end stack on right.
Plan: The house is built down the slope with the ground rising to left. There is a
shippon attached on the higher left hand side of the house forming an overall
rectangular plan.
The house has an unusual 3-room plan arrangement; the entrance appears to directly
lead into the central room, fairly close to the axial fireplace. The left hand room
appears unheated, the central room heated by an axial stack and the lower right hand
room heated by an end stack. The shippon is probably a circa C18 extension to the
Exterior: Two storey farmhouse with an asymmetrical 4-window front, the ground
sloping down to right. Entrance near centre with plank door with C20 3-light window
and inserted C20 door to left. Small window directly to right of entrance with 2-
light window to right. First floor with 2-light casement with glazing bars removed,
C19 2-light casement and two C20 windows to right. The single storey shippon which
is attached on the left hand end is set slightly forward and has two entrances with
stable-type door on right, flanking a window opening.
Interior: The central room of the house has wany chamfered floor joists and a timber
roughly chamfered lintel to the fireplace. Lower right-hand room and roof structure
not inspected.
