Farmhouse. Early-mid C19. Part of the estate village of Sir William
Amcotts Ingilby. Coursed squared gritstone, Westmorland slate roof. 2
storeys, 3 x 2 bays. In Gothick style. Plinth. 3 steps up to central 3-

door-head with a double chamfer decorated with flower heads in relief; the
chamfers terminating in shields with the Ingilby star in relief at impost
level. All windows have pointed sashes with interlaced glazing bars; the 2-
piece arched lintels have a star motif at impost level as doorway. Square
hoodmoulds to all openings. Moulded eaves cornice and shallow blocking
course; hipped roof with 2 paired octagonal flued corniced stacks to rear,

the flower motif, Ingilby star, 2-piece lintel and window form from the
pedestrian entrance to the gatehouse and the windows of the north (coach-
house) range of the Castle for several houses in the village: Horngarth is
identical; Vale Lodge and Castle Close differ only in the chimney position
and Star House and Cottage are similar.
