162-1/14/11 (East side (off))


Farmhouse with attached barn. Probably C17; altered and now
verging on dilapidation. Roughly coursed sandstone rubble with
quoins, stone slate roof. Single-depth 2-unit plan on
north-south axis facing west with 3-bay barn continued to
south, a large outshut or porch to the front of this slightly
overlapping the house, and an added lean-to shippon at the
rear of the barn.
EXTERIOR: the house is 2 low storeys and 3 windows; the north
bay has a crudely-shouldered doorway to the right (immediately
left of the chimney stack), with an old batten-and-board door
with 3 vertical boards, 3 rows of studs and 2 strap hinges,
and a stone slate drip-band above; and a small square 6-pane
window above and to the left (damaged). The 2nd bay has a
stone slate drip-course over the ground floor, a 1-light
fire-window and a blocked square window at ground floor, and
another 1-light window and a small 4-pane window at 1st floor
above these. There is a substantial square chimney on the
ridge at the junction of the bays. The north gable wall has
through-stones, and the rear wall is blind. The outshut to the
barn has a doorway to the left and a corrugated iron roof. The
rear wall of the barn has a square loading window; the shippon
has a doorway in its rear wall.
The relative positions of the doorway and chimney stack
junction of the two bays suggests either that it was formerly
only one unit extended at an early date, or that it was built
as 2 units with a hearth-passage entry, which would be rare in
this area.
INTERIOR not inspected.
