4/19 Moss Side and
adjoining former barn


Farmhouse and former barn now private house. Late C17 with C19 extension; late
C18 or early Cl9 barn with C20 alterations. Mixed rubble with red sandstone
dressings, under graduated greenslate roof with roughcast and yellow brick
chimney stacks. Former barn with roughcast walls under graduated greenslate
roof. 2 storeys, 3 bays with 2-storey right-angled barn to right forming
overall L-shape. C20 door in alternate-block surround. 2-light stone-mullioned
windows with smaller firewindow to right. C20 glazed porch to right side and
2-storey Cl9 extension to rear. Barn now forms integral part of house with C20
windows. Interior of house has beamed ground-floor ceilings. Early C18 stone
fireplace with moulded stone mantelpiece. Carved and panelled court cupboard
dated 1672 was in the house when the present owner purchased in 1938 and as the
doorways were too narrow and windows too small, she thinks it has always been
there, although moved from its original position. Interior of barn has
alterations dated and inscribed on stone fireplace M.D., R.V.D., 1938 (Arthur
Morley Dobson and Rose Virginia Dobson). Reused C18 staircase with turned
balusters and carved tread ends, and inscribed C17 & C18 carved panelling, all
came from the demolished Grimes Hill, Sedbergh.
