SX 84 NW,
House, formerly a farmhouse. C17 or possibly earlier origins with later
alterations including C20 restoration. Local slate rubble with rendered
front. Asbestos tile roof, gabled at left-hand end, hipped at right-hand
end. Rendered left-hand end stack and axial stack and exposed stone rubble
right-hand end stack.
PLAN: Situated at right angles to road facing south-east. Long range,
probably formerly 4 rooms but internal partitions have been removed to form
at the left end one long room with a gable end stack, and at the right end a
small room which, since it has a fireplace at both ends, must have formerly
been 2 rooms. There is a doorway to the right of centre, probably to a
passage between the 2 rooms. In front of the right-hand room there is a
projecting bay and at the back a short wing attached to a long range of farm
buildings which have been converted into houses. Behind the main range
there is a parallel range of outbuildings also converted into houses.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys. Long asymmetrical 5-window range. The right-hand end
projects. Mostly late C19 2 and 3 and 5-light casements with glazing bars,
the 2 ground-floor right-hand windows are circa late C19 sashes of 16 and 6
panes. Doorway at centre with C19 studded softwood plank door with
wrought-iron hinges and C20 glazed porch with slate roof. There is another
doorway at the left-hand end of the front with a C20 glazed door.
At the right-hand end on the road a mounting block against the end wall. To
the right the short rear wing has a C20 glazed door with a chamfered wooden
lintel. At the rear a parallel range, probably C19 outbuildings converted
into separate house in C20.
INTERIOR: Seen from outside only. Large left end room has rough joists and
no main beam and the fireplace appears to have been rebuilt; probably
originally 2 rooms. The lower right-hand room has large open fireplace in
stack which probably backs onto a cross passage and has a high, chamfered
wooden lintel. The lower end room also has a chamfered cross-beam and a
small fireplace with a brick arch in the lower right-hand end wall.
