Range of Buildings immediately NE of Cross House Farmhouse

II

Range of buildings originally comprising a dwelling, storage area, threshing
barn and horse engine house (noted all residential Jun. 2016). Probably early C19. Random rubble; graduated
Westmoreland slate roof. The principal range lies parallel to the village
street and consists of a former single-storey, single-unit cottage (rendered,
with one large 6-pane housed sash window of 1901 and a small 4-pane casement
to left of doorway); a storage area with external stone steps leading to
doorway set under a small gable (and with two small openings, the surrounds
patched in brick); and the threshing barn (with a large wagon entrance in a
projecting extension under catslide), all in series. To the rear of the
threshing barn is a horse engine house, its roof intact, the entrance widened
(one jamb rebuilt in brick). It appears that the horse worked underneath the
gearing and machinery and this example is likely to be amongst the earliest in
the county. Cross House Farmhouse itself (dated 1901) is not included in this
listing.
