SE 086189
3/20 Castle Farmhouse


Substantial Victorian mock Gothic castle with turret, towers and battlements,
gatehouse and stable block. Mid C19. Dressed stone and rubblestone, stone
slate roofs. Front facade reads from right: 3-storey square embattled tower
with 2 arch-headed windows and lancets. Main 2-storey range has 3 large arch-
headed windows with 4 slightly shorter windows over, all with rusticated sills.
String course continues round 3-storey turret with false staircase lancets next
to 5-storey tower with lancets on each floor. Overentrance to rear courtyard is
3-storey tower with lancets and machicolation; all are embattled. To left a
stable block with rusticated battlements and arch-headed doorways and windows to
stalls for shire horses. An embattled tower with machicolation balances the
facade at the end. Rear forms intimate courtyard with outbuildings. Built by
the Shaw family, millowners of Holywell Green and of remarkable similarity to
the towers in Shaw Park (q.v.). It housed the bailiff who bred the shire horses
for Brookroyd Mills and was latterly known as Redman's, the name of the bailiff
to the Shaw Estate.
