24/66 Hemplands Farmhouse


Farmhouse. Dated 1694 with fenestration and additions late C18 and C19.
For Richard Wigglesworth, with alterations probably for George Horner.
Limestone rubble, gritstone and sandstone dressings, graduated stone slate
roof. Quoins. 2 storeys, 3 bays: the central and right-hand bays project
under a catslide roof and there is a single-storey porch with lean-to roof
in the angle, bay 1. North front (to road): the porch has a 6-panel door,
the top 2 panels glazed, in basket arched doorcase with cyma-moulded
quoined jambs and single-block lintel; lintel with relief lettering "R. W.
1694" in two recessed panels. Dripmould above is carried round the left
return of the porch over a small square window with projecting stone sill.
The eaves line of the C17 house is visible above the porch to bay 1. Bay 2:
a 4-pane side sliding sash to ground floor; 4-pane fixed sash above, both
in plain surrounds. Bay 3: a round-arched stair window with imposts and
keystone and slightly projecting surround. Corniced eaves stack, bay 2,
rendered rubble stack left; large rebuilt stack between bays 2 and 3;
external 2-flue stack behind ridge, right. Rear (south) facade: half-
glazed door, the lower half 3-panelled, between bays 1 and 2. Finely
carved sandstone architrave composed of hollow-moulded jambs, circular
motif in the spandrels, pulvinated frieze and moulded cornice. 4-pane
sashes in slightly projecting plain stone surrounds throughout: the sills
to the bay 3 windows are chamfered and the 2-piece jambs are of yellow
sandstone. Left return: an inserted 2-light window to ground floor; 2
small blocked chamfered windows to first floor above a reduction in the
wall thickness which is in line with the top of the left-hand quoins.
Right return: the external stack stands on the centre line of the C17
house; there is a small chamfered window with lead cames to right and a
blocked chamfered window to left. Two 4-pane sashes to extension, left
again. Interior: the large stack between bays 2 and 3 has an original
arched fireplace concealed by plaster. The house contains late C17 or
early C18 panelling, not seen in detail at resurvey. The notebooks kept by
Richard Wigglesworth in the late C17 record the costs of materials and
labour when Hemplands was rebuilt (Raistrick p.59) The house was largely
completed by 1687 at a cost of about £100 and included one "dubble piped
chimney", probably the external west gable stack. The large internal stack
may have been part of the earlier house on the site and the 1694 porch
probably stood between bays 2 and 3, against the side of this stack and
removed when the C18 extension was added. The 2-bay extension provided a
staircase hall and probably an east-facing dairy, typical of vernacular
buildings in the later C18 in this area. A. Raistrick, Old Yorkshire
Dales, (1971). The interpretation of the building is not followed in this
