Originally longhouse with byres; now cottage and outbuildings. Early C17;
raised and extended later; further alterations in C19. Coursed sandstone
rubble with roughly-tooled quoins; pantile roof with brick stacks, one
rebuilt. 3-cell, hearth-passage plan: outshut added and extended. Single-
storey and attic, 3-window front to house; 2 single-storey, single-bay byres
attached to left. Plank door to house, and horizontal-sliding sashes to
ground floor, of 3-lights to right of door and 2-lights to left and end
right. Similar small window of 2-lights inserted beneath eaves to left of
door, and 2 half-dormers to right with scalloped bargeboards and pointed 4-
pane sashes. Timber lintels to ground-floor openings. Plank doors to
byres, with heavy plain lintels. Coped gables. End right and right of
centre stacks. Interior: in room to right of cross-passage a complete
fireplace with bressumer, heck and witch post, and hearth bench survive.
The carved witch post is an extremely rare survival of a folk object largely
