10/136 Fountain Head and
adjoining barn


House and adjoining former house, now barn. Probably late C16 with additions
dated 1633, with initials I.H, E.H., and C19 alterations. Whitewashed red
sandstone random rubble with flush quoins; graduated sandstone slate roof with
coped gable and kneeler to right; C20 brick chimney stacks. 2-storey, 3-bay
original house; 2-storey, 2-bay C17 extension under common roof. Original house
has large projecting cart entrance to right. Ground floor 3-light
stone-mullioned window in chamfered surround to left; similar window above has
been blocked. Rear wall has two 2-light stone-mullioned windows, partly
blocked. Similar upper floor window and 3 smaller original windows now all
blocked. Extension has C20 door in chamfered surround with dated and inscribed
lintel. 2-pane sash windows in C19 painted stone surrounds, top right window
with glazing bars. C19 outshut to rear has C20 casement windows. Edward
Fountain married Elizabeth Senhouse, a relative of the Bishop of Carlisle, in
1632 and perhaps moved from the house at that date. See Transactions Cumberland
& Westmorland Antiquarian & Archaeological Society, old series, vol vii, p162.
C19 barn extension to left and C20 brick outshut are not of interest.
