6/83 Stone Gappe (formerly
listed under Glusburn
10.9.54 CP)


House, 1725 (on chimneystack). Built for William Bawdwen. Hammer dressed stone with a hipped stone slate roof. Built of three storeys and five bays, the south front being symmetrical around a canted triple bay. Two string courses which ramp up to meet chamfered quoins, the elevation being competed by a heavy cornice. Windows are sashes, those to the ground floor being architraved, those to upper floors having, plain stone surrounds. To the east gable wall is a small semioctagonal porch with a round-headed doorway and two tripartite square stone-mullion windows which have sashes. To the rear wall there is a round-headed stair window which has sashes retaining glazing bars, along with an early mullion window. This window, though missing its central mullion, is double chamfered, the outer chamfer being hollow. Of the two chimneys, one has blind arcading, and is inscribed 1725 WMB. Inside the house has been altered, but it retains an early staircase of 2 flights with a heavy closed string, moulded handrail, turned balusters and panelled newels. The main staircase has cantilevered stone treads, cast iron balusters and a continuous handrail.
