Small farmhouse, now house. Later C17, altered. Coursed thin
sandstone rubble, stone slate roof. Rectangular 2-bay

very low storeys and 2 windows; with the doorway at the left
end, a 2-light casement window to the right and another above
but offset to the left, a ragged break in the masonry between
the bays at 1st floor, and a gabled 2nd bay which has a
2-light casement at 1st floor only. Gable chimney to left and
parlour chimney at right-hand corner. The right-hand return
wall has a casement window to the front bay and a 3-light
mullioned window to the rear bay (now protected with external
glazing), both with simple hoodmoulds. The rear has mullioned
windows of 2 and 4 lights at ground floor (to the former dairy
and housepart respectively) and a mullioned 4-light window

INTERIOR: the housepart has the heck of a former inglenook,
and an C18 stone fireplace; the partition between the bays is
timber-framed; the former parlour has a cross-corner
fireplace; and the former partition between this room and the
dairy has been removed. HISTORY: an unusual example of a
typical late C17 farmhouse on a very small scale but with a
heated parlour; and similar to Heyes Farmhouse, Grimshaw Road
(qv) in having a cross-gabled bay to a rectangular 2-unit
