Listing Text


10/74 Byre north-east of


Byre, formerly Bastle House. Late C16 with C19 alterations and additions.
North-east wall is extremely thick mixed rubble, with rubble additions, Welsh
slate roof with stone ridge and hips. Formerly 2 storeys, probably 3 bays.
Only north-east wall remains with early C19 additions to left and right, under
common roof, with rebuilt south-west wall; lean-to farm buildings now cover part
of north and all of south wall. One chamfered surround small window, beside C19
entrance, with holes for cross bars now removed, is the only original opening
visible. Original entrances to ground and upper floor were probably in
southwest wall; no internal remains of stone vaulting. Other filled entrance to
right is probably C18, with wooden lintel. In the Gilsland Survey of 1603, this
is referred to as 'a faire stonehouse'. See RCHM, Shielings & Bastles, 1970,
