8/55 Duckett's Farmhouse
House, probably late C17 with remains of timber frame possibly C16,
altered. Sandstone rubble with slate roof and brick chimneys. 2 storeys.
Main range of 2 bays, with one-bay cross-wing projecting at right. Windows
of main range appear to be later C19 and are of 3 sashed lights with
glazing bars, with chamfered mullions and with chamfered stone surrounds.
The windows of the cross-wing have glazing bars and a central mullion.
Door, to right of left-hand bay, has chamfered stone surround. Chimneys on
left-hand gable and to right of door. Interior not accessible at time of
survey, but contains remains of timber frame of light scantling, including
evidence for a jetty on the south wall of the cross-wing. The building
will be described and illustrated in a forthcoming book by Watson, R.C.
and McClintock, M.E. on traditional houses in the Claughton area. Their
opinion on the development of the house is that a timber-framed
cross-wing, divided into a buttery and heated parlour, was added onto an
existing building with clay or turf walls and that some timber framing was
added to this existing building at the same time. They believe that a
lintel inscribed '1690' now in the farmyard may date the rebuilding of the
external walls in stone.
