3/73 Red Lee Farmhouse
(formerly listed as "Western farmhouse,
and adjoining shippons, at Red Lee Farm")

Farmhouse, probably early C17. Coursed sandstone rubble with quoins, stone
slate roof with gable chimneys. Now 2 bays, originally baffle-entry; possibly
formerly 3 bays on U-plan. Two storeys. Projecting 1st bay, roof carried down
over it, has plain doorway and 2 square windows; 2nd bay has at the right, close
to the angle with the shippon, a very large blocked doorway with chamfered
surround, to the left a 4-light double-chamfered stone mullion window (originally
5 lights), both these with unusually large hollow-moulded hoodmoulds, and at
1st floor a similar 5-light window without a hoodmould, and a very small
chamfered window above the doorway. To the right the lean-to shippon projects
like the 1st bay, and has remains of an old window (perhaps 4 or 5 lights), and
an inserted door: perhaps formerly a right wing. Left return wall has
inter alia a 4-light window at 1st floor. Rear has, at the junction of the
bays, an outshut like a stair turret (the roof carried down over it) with
remains of a 2-light window, to the left (2nd bay) a 2-light firewindow and
a 3-light window at ground floor, a 4-light window above; and to the right
a 4-light window lacking one mullion. Interior: beams with tongue-stopped
ΒΌ-round moulding, and in the end wall of the 2nd bay a very large stone
arched fireplace, now blocked and covered.
