12/92 Quarry Cottage
6/10/69 (formerly listed
as Quarry House

Farmhouse, probably early C17. Roughly-coursed squared stone,
lightly tooled in front, on rougher plinth. Pantiled roof with
stone copings and stacks. Longhouse; most of byre has been removed
though through passage remains. 1 storey and attic, 3 bays plus
passage bay. Modern half-glazed door to through passage. One
3-light and one 2-light short chamfered stone-mullioned windows and
another at right with mullion removed; a small inserted
larder window between these two. Modern dormer, to right of centre,
and flanking skylights. Corniced stack at left over original
hearth. Added small chimney at right. Left passage bay has hipped
roof, slightly lower than main roof. Rear elevation shows a wide
buttress at left and an inserted 3-light casement in centre. Old
passage door of thick planks and battens, with long hinges and a
stout wood drawbar inside. Drawbar tunnel in wall.

Interior: chamfered doorway from passage to forehouse. Plank-and-
muntin panelled heck with carved witchpost in situ and original
settle inside. Original firebeam and hood rising through attic
storey (visible inside cupboard). Within this a late Cl7 or early
C18 wide stone fireplace with deep curved brackets. Salt and spice
cupboards of oak, both at left of fireplace. Old joists support
wide planks of attic floor over forehouse only; the rest of the
house was probably not floored over until the C19: upstairs doors,
floors and partitions are of C19 and later. The present pantry is
between forehouse and parlour, suggesting an early dairy/service
room in this position, characteristic of local longhouses; staircase
behind this, possibly shifted when dairy reduced to pantry size.

A remarkably complete survival of the house part of an early
longhouse; however there is no visible evidence of crucks and the
roof timbers look largely replaced.
