162-1/12/99 (North side)
16/03/54 Hud's House and attached barn
(Formerly Listed as:
Huds House)


Farmhouse, now house; with attached barn to rear. Probably
earlier C17, remodelled and raised in later C17 or early C18;
altered. Random rubble with quoins, stone slate roof.
Irregular L-shaped plan composed of a single-depth 2-unit main
range with a large central porch, a rear outshut to the centre
and west portions, and a long barn range forming a rear wing
to the east portion.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys (raised from one storey), 1:2 windows. The
prominent storeyed porch in the centre has a narrow
square-headed outer doorway, a stone slate cornice above this,
a few randomly-arranged through-stones, stone side-benches and
a chamfered axial beam, its left (west) side wall has an
unusual oblong projection (of unknown purpose) at 1st floor
level, and its right-hand side wall has a 9-pane fixed window
at 1st floor. To the left the main range has a rubble
relieving arch at ground floor over 2 altered windows, a
narrow 1-light window further left, a stone platform or bench
(known as a "bink") beneath these windows, and one square
window at 1st floor; to the right of the porch is a similar
but smaller relieving arch over a square 2-light casement, a
smaller 4-pane window further right, and at 1st floor an
oblong window and a square window (the latter with a re-used
lintel). At the left gable is a large external chimney stack
with both battering and stone slate offsets, and a stone slate
cornice; at the right-hand gable is a large square corbelled
chimney. Both gable walls show the gable-lines of a formerly
very steeply-pitched roof, and the left gable wall has 2 small
blocked attic windows flanking the chimney. Rear outshuts in 2
phases, the centre earlier, with a chamfered 1-light window to
the dairy. The barn wing to the rear has through-stones in all
3 walls; its east side wall has an inserted domestic window
abutting the rear corner of the house on each floor, a doorway
with a cornice, a blocked loading doorway above and to the
right, and a small square opening near the far end; its west
side has a small lean-to.
INTERIOR: thick stone lateral partition wall to left of
doorway, inserted C19 partition to right; stop-chamfered
joists over passage thus formed but none visible in room to
right (suggesting former sleeping loft to this room); left
room has tall segmental-arched fireplace with rubble
voussoirs; right-hand room has C18 stone fireplace with
corbelled lintel, and bread-oven to left of this.
