SD3201 BACK LANE, Little Crosby
778-1/5/151 Crosby Hall Educational Trust
(Formerly Listed as:
Barns and stable block at Crosby
Hall & cobbled yard)


Barn with coach-house and added gin-house and stable range
forming south side of cobbled farmyard; now variously meeting
hall, dwelling, classrooms, dining room, offices of
Educational Trust. Barn probably C16, remodelled and probably
shortened in C17, partly converted to coach-house and large
stable range added in later C18 or early C19; recently
converted, with alterations and some additions. Coursed
squared sandstone, stone slate roofs with coped gables;
gin-house of brick with slate roof.
PLAN: modified L-plan formed by barn on roughly north-south
axis with former coach-house at its south end, gin-house added
to north gable wall, stable range attached to north-west
corner, and outbuildings (saddle rooms) attached to north-west
corner of this. Entrance block and lean-to corridor recently
added to north side of stable range.
BARN appears to have been formerly timber-framed and of at
least six bays, shortened at the north end and re-clad in
stone in the C17, with opposed wagon doorways in the centre;
and subsequently remodelled to convert the southern half into
a coach-house, by blocking the wagon doorways and inserting a
stone wall partition wall in the centre. The south front
(apart from its north end, now covered by the added stable
range) has a chamfered plinth, an inserted round-headed
doorway close to the junction, a slit breather above this, an
inserted 12-pane window above and to the right, a pair of
elliptical-arched wagon doorways in the centre with rusticated
surrounds and keystones (now blocked, with recent windows and
doorway), 2-light casement windows over these, an inserted
1-light window at ground floor to the right and 2- and 1-light
windows above this. The north gable wall, covered at ground
floor by C19 polygonal gin-house (now altered as meeting room)
has chamfered slit-breathers, an owl-hole and an inserted
opening for the drive shaft of the former horse-gin.
INTERIOR: the northern half has 3 massive collar trusses (one
abutting the present north gable wall), and 2 sets of
wind-braced purlins, and there are said to be 2 similar

trusses in the southern half (now converted as dwelling, and
not accessible at time of inspection).

STABLE RANGE, a long 2-storey 7-window range, with a low
plinth, has 4 round-headed doorways arranged in widely-space
pairs in each side, all with simple imposts and keystones and
mostly with fanlights which have radiating glazing bars, and
square windows with restored sills and joinery (most of these
openings on the north side now covered by recent additions).
Attached at right-angles to the west end of the north side is
a low outbuilding (formerly saddle rooms), recently altered.
Forms group with range of former farm buildings on north side
of courtyard (qv).
