Farmhouse. No.13 perhaps later C17, rebuilt in later C18,

dwelling. No.13 of coursed sandstone rubble partly rebuilt in
brick and the facade painted, No.13A of red brick in English
garden wall bond with painted sandstone dressings, both with
slate roofs and brick chimneys.
EXTERIOR: No.13 is one single-depth unit, plus an added
parallel range to rear; 2 low storeys and one window, with a
4-light segmental-headed casement at ground floor, a similar
but smaller 3-light window above, and a gable chimney to the
No.13A to the right is double-depth and double-fronted with a
porch to the front and a short set-back wing to the right, 2
storeys and 2 windows, almost symmetrical, with painted
quoins. The ground floor has a gabled porch offset slightly
left, with a stone facade including a 2-centred arch and coped
gable with kneelers; both floors have chamfered flush-mullion
windows with quoined surrounds, that to the right at ground
floor with 3 lights and the others with 2 lights. At 1st floor
above the porch the letters "N+B" (= Nicholas Blundell) are
picked out in yellow headers. Gable copings with kneelers, and
gable chimneys. Single-storey wing to right.
Pigsty range to rear, of sandstone rubble and some brick: 2
pens, with flagstone feeding chutes, and store to left.
INTERIOR: No.13 contains an early-C19 hob-grate, now restored
to use.
Collectively all the buildings in Little Crosby Conservation
Area form a valuable group of similar scale but varied dates,
material and style.
