(Formerly Listed as:
(East side)
Barn opposite Hollies Bush to the


Farmhouse with attached shippon or stable, now used as stock
shelter and hay loft. Probably late C17 or early C18; altered.
Roughly coursed mixed rubble, mostly limestone, with some
sandstone lacing courses and through-stones, sandstone
dressings and quoins; outbuilding of coursed sandstone rubble;
stone slate roof. Single-depth 2-unit plan on north-south
axis, facing east (built back to road), with 1-unit
outbuilding added at north end.
EXTERIOR: 2 low storeys and 3 windows. The ground floor has a
doorway offset slightly right, with quoined jambs and
flat-arched head with large rubble voussoirs, and a wooden
frame now lacking the door; a small segmental-headed 1-light
fire-window and a 2-light flush mullion window to the left,
both chamfered and both with diamond-set iron saddle-bars and
stone slate hoodmoulds, and a similar 2-light window to the
right. The upper floor has a small chamfered 1-light window to
the left and 2 similar 2-light mullioned windows lacking
mullions and glazing. The outbuilding attached to the north
has a doorway abutting the junction. The left (south) gable
wall has remains of a formerly corbelled chimney with added
stepped under-building below. The rear (where the ground floor
is now back-to-earth) has an inserted loading doorway
immediately over the top of a 2-light mullioned window;
another loading doorway to the loft of the outbuilding.
INTERIOR: ground floor remodelled for livestock; upper floor
(now open from end to end), has 2 principal rafter trusses and
trenched purlins.
The relatively unaltered facade with original openings,
despite loss of mullions and glazing, is a valuable survival.
