Gawthrop Hall and adjoining barn to
Farmhouse and cottage. Probably late C17 or early C18;
extended in C18 and altered, with a C20 extension to the rear.
Mixed random rubble, the front painted white; stone slate
roof. T-plan formed by single-depth 2-unit main range, on
east-west axis facing north, with rear wing to 2nd unit and
cottage added at west end.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys, 4+2 windows. The 4-window main range has
a gabled porch offset slightly right, chamfered flush mullion
windows of 2 and 2 lights to the left, 3 and 2 lights to the
right, all with remains of stone slate hoodmoulds, and four
2-light windows above (grouped 2 and 2). Large square chimney
at junction to right (former gable), later or rebuilt gable
chimney to left. The cottage to the right has a large gabled
porch in the centre, with 2 tiers of pigeon holes over the
doorway and a peephole in the left side, a 2-light mullioned
window to the left, a similar but wider window to the right,
and 2-light mullioned widows above; all these with squared
surrounds and roughly squared flush mullions. Rear: gable of
wing has a round-headed 1-light stair-window offset right, and
an unusual corbelled chimney (corbelled base offset left at
1st floor and the shaft stepped diagonally to the square cap
at the apex).
INTERIOR: partitioning altered so that former housepart of
main range is internally integrated with cottage; large elm
beams in both these rooms.
