162-1/24/202 (South side (off))
14/06/84 High Laning Farmhouse


Farmhouse. Probably early C18 (spice cupboard dated 1708);
enlarged and altered. Mixed random rubble with quoins, the
facade painted white; stone slate roof. L-plan formed by
single-depth 2-unit main range with a rear wing to the left
half, extended and enlarged with a 1-unit addition to the east
end and a longer rear wing to that.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys (plus unexpressed attic), 2+5 windows,
with a ragged vertical joint. The 5-window main range (the
windows grouped 3:2, and those to the right at a slightly
lower level) has a segmental-headed doorway below the 3rd
window, with rubble voussoirs and arch-band, and a C20 glazed
door; two windows to the left and 2 to the right at ground
floor, all almost-square 6-pane sashes with vertical glazing
bars only; and 5 similar windows above. The 2-window extension
to the left has a doorway with stone lintel abutting the
junction and 2 windows on each floor, those at ground floor
slightly smaller and with stone lintels, but otherwise all
like those of the main range. Ridge chimney at the junction,
square corbelled chimneys at both ends, that to the left
corbelled from 1st floor and the other at the apex. Rear: main
range and its wing have random through-stones; small lean-to
addition in angle; 3 offset stair-windows in gable of this
wing, of diminishing size and the topmost blocked. Larger
added wing has altered windows and lean-to porch at gable end.
INTERIOR (ground floor of main range only): housepart has 2
large lateral beams and left of chimney-breast a carved
decorated spice cupboard lettered "1708 / TLM"; altered
parlour has 2 large axial beams.
