14/06/84 Badger Dub and stable or shippon
attached to south-west


Farmhouse, now house, with attached stable or shippon.
Probably early C18; altered in C19. Roughly coursed sandstone
rubble with large irregular quoins, large irregular
through-stones except at the front, and roofs of slate and
stone slate. Single-depth 2-unit plan on east-west axis facing
south, with rear wing to right-hand half; and projecting
stable wing attached to west end.
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys and 2 windows, almost symmetrical (except
for the wing). The ground floor has a square-headed doorway
with moulded surround, now protected by a light C20 porch with
2 columns, flanked by tall 4-pane sashes. The 1st floor has
shorter 4-pane sashes, and the outlines and lintels of some
earlier windows; and the top floor has 2 very small 4-pane
windows (in vertical alignment with 2 of the aforesaid lintels
rather than the present windows). Stone gutter brackets. Gable
chimneys with stone slate bands. The front wall of the stable
wing to the left, full-height under a carried-down roof, has a
wide doorway to the left with a rectangular lintel, a floating
stone slate drip-band above and a similar but shorter
drip-band on the same level to the right, and a 3-tiered
pigeon cote near the top, with stone slate ledges; the longer
west side wall, with through-stones, has steps up to a raised
doorway, and a 1-light window above to the left. Rear:
asymmetrically gabled wing has doorway flanked by 2-light
windows on different levels of each floor (those to left
higher), all with square-cut surrounds, and all except the
upper to the right with flat-faced mullions; and its lower
right-hand wall has corbelled chimney with cylindrical shaft.
INTERIOR: fine C18 fielded panelling with dado rails and
moulded cornices, including partitions to entrance hall, and
partition between chambers above which has fluted pilasters
and incorporates built-in cupboards and drawers (very similar
to Cage Farmhouse, Dent CP, qv); dog-legged staircase to attic
level, with closed string, square newels, turned balusters and
moulded handrail; 3 upper-cruck roof trusses, with very
sharply elbowed principals to the front slope (c.f. Stone
Hall, in Sedbergh CP, qv), pegged collars, and carpenter's
marks numbered from west to east. Interior of stable or
shippon has good original wooden boskins. Forms group with
privy to east (qv), and with Badger Dub Cottage to south-west
