(west side)
8/22 No. 53 (previously
listed as Town Fold,
also called
10.9.54 Sunnyside)
House. Early C18, divided into 3 cottages late C18, altered to 2 cottages
probably mid C19, restored to a single dwelling mid C20. Coursed grey
gritstone, graduated stone slate roof. 2 storeys, 3 bays. Quoins to right.
C20 glazed door between bays 2 and 3 in a finely cut architrave with
entablature and cornice. A similar door in a plain surround between bays 1
and 2 with probably blocked door to left, now a window. Ground-floor
windows: one to each bay, plain sawn stone surrounds, C20 frames, 3 similar
windows to first floor. Slightly bulbous kneelers, gable copings. Fine
corniced ridge stack to right, banded plain stacks to ridge between bays 1
and 2, and 2 and 3. Interior: the original entrance is directly into a
living room, behind the main central living room fireplace. The central
fireplace is very wide and cambered, the lintel in 3 parts with a central
keystone, and incised in imitation of voussoirs. A stone newel staircase
against the rear wall of this room, the original partitions removed. The
building appears to have followed a pattern of changing use typical of
Grassington. A C17 farmhouse (Town Fold), divided into 3 small cottages in
the later C18, probably to house lead-miners' families; the left 2 bays
altered again to one cottage and the building becoming a Post Office and
cobbler's shop by the early C20 and returning to one house in the mid C20,
known as Sunnyside for a short tine.
