Barrow's Brow Farmhouse and Cottage

Farmhouse now 2 dwellings. Early C17 core encased early C19. Some internal
timber framing; red brick, Welsh slate roof. 2 storeys, 3 windows to 1st floor.
Inserted door within added porch to left of centre; on right are casements of 3
and 2 lights beneath segmental arches; on left is a similar 2-light window and
inserted part-glazed door to Barrow's Brow Cottage. Square-headed, 3-light
casements to 1st floor. Brick end stacks set to side of ridge, similar stack to
right of centre. Lean-to against left return (not of special interest).
Interior: 2 pairs of crucks divide original 3-cell house; those to left are roughly
ogee-shaped with collar and post to support ridge (missing); confused framing within.
The other pair are marked '11' and are infilled by framing and brickwork which
forms reredos to an inserted brick stack; bressumer of earlier smoke-hood survives.
Various ceiling beams, that within cottage has stopped chamfers. An original oak-
mullioned 2-light window has been reused within right edge of farmhouse. The
positioning of the end stack and traces of stylobates indicate that both gables
probably had cruck framework. The present rear door to farmhouse (within later
addition) is roughly in position of a baffle entry against the former smokehood.

The house has a well documented history with John Barrow recorded as having
paid Hearth Tax on one chimney in 1664/6.
