Renshaw Farm Cottage

(Formerly listed as: Former house, now outbuilding between Renshaw Cottage and Topham's Farmhouse)



House (outbuilding when surveyed, reported renovated 07/17), late C17 or earlier, extensively altered in the C18
and C19. Limestone rubble with gritstone dressings, graduated stone slate
roof. 2-storey, 3-bay range with added bay to left. Quoins. Main range:
board door left of centre with chamfered quoined jambs and large lintel;
board door with tie-stone jambs to left; C19 board double doors with
quoined jambs and wooden lintel far right; recessed 3-light window to left
with chamfered mullions to left of left-hand door, a round-headed chamfered
window above. A 3-light flat faced mullion window to right between other two
doors, one mullion removed; a square opening with wooden lintel above.
Added bay to left: board door with plain lintel left; external stair to
board door with tie-stone jambs right. Stone stack with moulded cornice to
left of main range. Rear: small square blocked opening to ground floor
left; a loading door above ground level with sawn stone surround, centre.
Right return: two blocked square openings with crudely dressed surrounds to
ground floor; churn stand against wall to right.

INTERIOR: the ground
floor of bay 1 of main range seen at resurvey. There is a fireplace with
well-dressed chamfered jambs and a corbelled cambered arch against the left
wall. The overmantle retains plaster decoration to ceiling height. To
left of centre a rectangular panel with three tiers of lettering: from the
bottom: " 1697 ","W S" and (possibly added later) " S " and a small
raised cross in a panel far left, beneath the ceiling beam. To right of
centre the overmantle is filled by a moulded recessed panel having a
3-branched plant with paired buds and leaf-shaped finials in relief; the two
lower corners have small thistle-shaped motifs. Two spine beams have cyma
stops to the chamfers; the joists are fastened into the wall beams carried
on corbels. Only the doorway with quoined jambs, the remains of the left
window and the round-headed first-floor window are likely to date from the
late C17; the remaining openings probably date from the conversion of the
dwelling to farm use in the later C18, when the main stack must have been
