10/27 Bastle House


Bastle house. Late C16 or early C17. Grey calciferous sandstone rubble. 3
extremely thick walls of the ground floor of a former 2-storey house. Fourth
wall is rebuilt and includes original chamfered and rebated jambs with drawbar
tunnel forming present entrance. Interior dividing wall is a later addition and
end wall appears to have been gabled, probably for use as a shieling hut. See
RCHM, Shielings and Bastles, 1970, p76. In ruinous condition at time of survey.
