GV II

Farmhouse, now store. Probably late C17 - early C18. Coursed drystone
rubble, stone slate, corrugated iron and asbestos roofs; centre stack and
hipped roof to left part; end stack to right gable. L-plan, local develop-
ment of long house type, 4-cell arrangement of the part to the right divided
into stair/chimney area, principal room, cross-passage and a further cell
which joins and overlaps the left hand subsidiary return wing used for
service and animals. Right part: 2-storey one-window front, 3 lights to
ground floor and 4 to first floor above (both windows covered up at time
of re-survey (1984) but upper one may have diamond section mullions),
entrance to left near junction with return wing under corrugated iron
canopy by ledged C19 door. Rear elevation has 2-window front: to left is
former 5-light diamond section mullioned window now of 3 lights under
label; to right is another window to rear of junction of the 2 ranges which
had 3 mullions; above the first window, but slightly to the right is a
partly blocked mullioned window of the same size retaining one mullion and
the apertures for another. Left part: one storey and attic, one casement
of 3 lights to righthand side, another small casement of 2 lights to left
with ledged C19 door to its right. Interior: right part has plank and
muntin screen through which beneath large deeply chamfered beam to left

cell of main range; principal right hand room has newel staircase to rear
side of fireplace and 2 chamfered beams dividing ceiling into 3 parts.
Inside of left part of return range is a cowhouse. (Right part of return
range not inspected). Forms a surprisingly complete example of a developed
longhouse incorporating animals, service area and a bending of the traditional
plan.
