(Formerly Listed as:
Gibbs Hall and Barn to south-east)


Farmhouse, now derelict and roofless. Probably late C17 or
early C18; altered, and recently consolidated as a ruin.
Roughly coursed sandstone rubble with quoins; through-stones
in west gable. Single-depth 2-unit plan on east-west axis,
facing south, with a shallow staircase outshut to the rear of
the 2nd unit.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys and 3 windows; with the side walls and
pitched stone slate water-tabling of a former gabled porch
offset to the right; 2 rectangular windows to the left and one
to the right, both with stone slate drip-courses over them.
1st floor with restored square window opening to the left and
two 2-light windows with segmental-arched lights. All these
windows lack joinery. The left gable has the base of a
corbelled chimney. Rear outshut has a 2-light chamfered flush
mullion window on each floor.
INTERIOR: lacks internal partition and upper floor, but
retains doorway to former staircase and 2 doorways at 1st
floor from this; some evidence of recent partial re-building.
Forms group with Gibbs Hall Farmhouse (qv), and with K6
telephone kiosk (qv) adjacent to outbuilding in front of Gibbs
Hall Farmhouse.
The former barn to the south-east has been converted to a
dwelling and is no longer of special interest.
