(north side, off)
12/56 White Abbey
House. C17 with C18 and C19 extensions and alterations and C20 restoration.
Grey gritstone, graduated stone slate roof. 2 storeys, 5 first-floor
windows to 4 bays. Quoins. C20 door to bay 2 in sawn stone surround with
hoodmould. To right of door: a 4-light stone mullion window with
hoodmould, a 2-light wooden mullion window in possibly blocked doorway, and
a 3-light wood mullioned window; all window sills lowered. To left of door
a tall wooden mullioned window in architrave to ground and first floors.
Remaining first-floor windows; a 3-and a 4-light recessed chamfered mullion
window, a 2-light window with a wooden mullion and a 3-light mullion
window. Bulbous kneelers, gable copings; 3 tall corniced ridge stacks, to
each end and in line with the blocked doorway; eaves stack to left of
present entrance. Rear: 2 projecting parallel- roofed service wings with
4-pane sashes. Right return: 2 small square chamfered openings to gable of
front range. Interior: the central living room has a large C18 fireplace
with flat lintel in line with the blocked doorway; the 2 ceiling beams have
scarfed joints in front of the fireplace, indicating the position of the
timber bressumer which would have supported a timber-framed firehood in the
earliest phase of the house. An early post and panel partition survives in
part at the top of the stairs which are C20. There is a small fireplace
with roll-moulded surround to left of the present front door, and in the
left bay an elaborate fireplace with bolection moulding and cornice. C19
features include a large cooking fireplace with chamfered sawn stone
surround to the rear wing kitchen and a stone stair between the kitchen and
right gable fireplace. The left-hand rear service room has a larder
containing stone salting slabs and stone floor with drain. The gable
fireplace to front, far right has a C19 wooden surround reusing C17 carved
details, and probably C17 - C18 Delft tiles. The earlier name of the house
was Trout beck, the local author Haliwell Sutcliffe changed the name when he
lived at the house from the early C20 until his death in 1932.
