8/31 Crookdake Hall



Farmhouse. Late C16 or early C17 incorporating C14 features. Painted and
pebble-dashed walls, under graduated greenslate roof with brick chimney stacks.
2 storeys, 4 bays, with 2-storey stair wing to rear forming overall L-shape.
C16 or C17 2-storey gabled stone porch has plank door in Tudor-arched surround,
under continuous hoodmould extending over C19 side window; and similar window
over door. Sash windows in C19 painted stone surrounds. Wall to right of porch
is an extension, with C20 lean-to porch to extreme right; the left wall is
extremely thick. Wall to left side has massive stepped plinth. Rear extension
has C19 sash windows in painted stone surrounds but blocked end windows have C16
or C17 hoodmoulds. Internal extremely thick C14 end wall has newel staircase in
its thickness, blocked on ground floor, but still used as bedroom access to
attic. In the same wall, now behind a C20 fireplace, is a ground-floor C16 or
C17 stone-arched fireplace. Ruined medieval wall, now detached from the house,
suggests that this and the end wall formed part of a tower belonging to the
Crookdakes in the C14, the Musgraves in the late C15 and Ballantines from 1663.
See Cumberland News, 8 July, 1939.
