NY 32 NW,

Building 35 metres west of Threlkeld Parish Church



Formerly a house (Although not used as such since the mid C19), now (June 1989)
derelict. Partly C16 with C17 and later alterations. Random rubble with graduated Cumbrian slate gable-end roof. Single storey with loft. PLAN: now 2 units
but possibly originally 3 (the cruck now stands at the extreme west end of the
building adjacent to the end wall and - as it appears to be in situ - the likelihood is that the house extended one bay or more to the west).

(roadside), one low entrance with massive cambered lintel, window (now boarded
up) with large lintel and C19 frame; tall C19 doorway to right with boarded
stable-type doors. Rear elevation, partially collapsed (and exposing south
cruck blade); clear masonry joint marking division between the two rooms. 2
windows, one set low under cambered lintel; later doorway to left. Single
window to west end wall.

INTERIOR: stone dividing wall between the 2 rooms not
bonded in to main walls; full cruck, collar, trenches for saddle and spur ties;
roof with ridge piece and side purlins. At the east end a large internal stone
stack with massive bressumer; this is a good example of the phase in fireplace
development that followed (or improved upon) the timber smoke hood. Remains of
loft floor supported in part on fireplace bressumer. NOTE: in 1634 this
property was known as Church Stile Tenement and stood on the edge of the former
open field.
