18/94 Former farmhouse and
attached barn.


House (unoccupied June 1990) with barn attached to left. C17 with later
alterations, the C19 barn containing re-used C16 cruck trusses. Random
rubble; diminishing slate roof (large C19 slates to house, re-used
smaller slates to barn), sandstone ridge. 2 storeys. 2-unit, through -
panage house with a later C17 rear outshut that contains the stairs.
House: regular 3-window range, all windows with small-paned part-
opening casements, those to the 1st floor with timber lintels, those to
the ground floor (and including doorway) with rough stone cambered
arches. Planked door. End stacks. Right return plain with a low
buttress (added). Rear of house with outshut that does not extend the
full length of the house, under catslide roof with 2 late - C17 oak
mullioned windows. The outshut partly blocks one of the original rear
windows of the house. Vertical masonry points between house and barn;
latter with 2 doorways under flat lintels and a wagon entrance under
cambered arch, and 2 slit ventilators to upper floor. Plain walling to
rear (with single small opening).

Interior: Stone wall divides the 2 rooms at ground floor level. Right-
hand room fireplace with sandstone surround and remains of C19 cast-iron
grate and a complete rubble fire-hood (visible 1st floor); brick-lined
bread-oven to right of fireplace, recessed open shelving to left.
Unchamfered ceiling beams. Roof with trenched purlins, ridge piece,
principal rafters and tie beams.

The barn is understood to contain re-used crucks (possibly from an
earlier house on the site).
