forming a quadrangle


Group of farm buildings forming a quadrangle. c1805 by Peter Atkinson (York)
for Edward Lascelles, 1st Earl of Harewood. Hammer-dressed stone, stone slate
roofs. Single storey and 2 storey. A balanced composition. Quoins. South
range: central gate piers flanked either side by 6-bay open cartsheds with
segmental arches on square piers. Hipped roofs. Wall links to East and West
ranges forming 3 sides of quadrangle. West range: central 7-bay barn: quoins,
segmental-arched cart-entry with ashlar voussoirs and skewbacks and punch-dressed
composite jambs flanked by 2 over 3 rectangular ventilators either side; projecting
eaves band; hipped roof. Set back, lower flanking 6-bay ranges with segmental
arches on square piers (blocked and cement rendered.) Hipped roof to left. Roof
to right joins with North range. Rear: barn: similar cart-entry with arched
ground-floor window to each end. Attached ranges have 5 bays to left and 3 bays
to right with similar arched windows high up set below eaves. East range: central
4-bay 2-storey dairy: quoins; ashlar plinth, 1st-floor band; eaves band; bays 2
and 4 have doorways with tie-stone jambs and arched fanlights with voussoirs; ground-
floor windows have projecting sills and arched heads with glazed fanlights. 1st
floor has 4 bullseye windows. Hipped roof with end stack to left. Slightly set
back, lower single-storey flanking ranges. That to right of 5 bays, continues
ground-floor pattern of arched windows and doors with doors in 2nd, 4th and 5th
bays; hipped roof to right. That to left of 6 bays, has similar arched doorways
in bays 1, 2 and 6 with window in bay 4 flanking paired segmental-arched cart
entries in bays 3 and 4 one leading through to rear. North range: the climax of
the composition. Symmetrical. Has 9-bay 2-storey building with flanking single-
storey 3-bay wings linking with other ranges. Ground-floor bays have round-arched
windows and doorways, some retaining glazed fanlights. 2-storey range has ashlar
plinth, 1st-floor sill band and eaves band, central 3 bays breaking forward
slightly with tall central cart-entry with quoined jambs and moulded pedimented
coped gable. 1st-floor windows are square with projecting sills and flat arches
with voussoirs some retaining small paned sashes. Set within re-entrant angle of
cart entry are doorways either side with tie-stone jambs and chamfered surrounds.
Interior of this range: cart-entry leads into barrel-vaulted passage-way. Stone
steps with simple cast-iron balustrade (handrail removed) lead to 1st floor which
has large rooms with evidence of former dado on walls perhaps indicating use as
accommodation; fish-bone king-post roof with subsidiary struts.

A good example of a model farm in the Carr classical tradition, somewhat conserva-
tive for its date. At time of resurvey, 1985, unused and sadly dilapidated.

Illustrated and authoritively discussed in J. M. Robinson, "In pursuit of
excellence", Country Life, June 28, 1979 pp 2113-2116.
