High Scale Farmhouse with attached
stable to west and barn to east


Farmhouse with integral stable and added barn, now used as
store. Probably C16 or earlier C17, remodelled and enlarged in
mid C18; altered. Coursed sandstone rubble with quoins, the
house slobbered and the barn with 2 courses of through-stones,
with stone slate roofs. Linear plan on north-east/south-west
axis, facing south-east (hereinafter "east-west facing
south"): the 2-bay house and 1-bay stable in one build with a
through-passage between them, but the house with a continuous
full-height outshut added to the rear, and the barn attached
at the east end.
EXTERIOR: the main range, 2 storeys and 2 windows, the
domestic portion almost symmetrical, has an almost continuous
stone slate drip-course over the ground floor pitched up over
a square-headed doorway in the centre; 2 square windows at
ground floor with altered glazing, an oblong 12-pane fixed
window to the left at 1st floor and a small rectangular 9-pane
fixed window to the right. To the left a flight of external
steps forms a porch to the through-passage doorway and serves
a loft doorway above. Square chimney on ridge at junction with
stable, and another at junction with added barn (the former
probably corbelled inside the stable loft). The west gable has
a small window to the stable, a drip-band and a course of
through-stones. The rear wall of the stable has a
through-passage doorway against the angle of the outshut (with
remains of a former lean-to porch in this angle) and a 1-light
window to the right. The rear wall of the outshut has 2 small
rectangular windows at ground floor and 3 above, symmetrically
arranged. The attached barn, 5 bays, has through-stones on 2
levels, and a wide doorway to the 2nd bay on the south side;
its rear wall has a segmental-headed wagon doorway in the
centre with rubble voussoirs and a drip-band, and 2 small
square openings to the right.
INTERIOR: house now lacks upper floor, but housepart to left
has C18 fireplace with corbelled lintel, spice-cupboard recess
to left and former doorway to right (to through-passage)
adapted as cupboard with stone shelves; doorway in rear right
corner leading to spiral stone staircase; lateral partition
wall has recess for former court-cupboard; parlour to right
has small rectangular C18 fireplace with moulded imposts.
Principal-rafter roof truss over housepart. Through-passage
has doorway to stable at south end and blocked doorway to
house at north end.
HISTORICAL NOTE: rare survival of through-passage longhouse
plan, altered but still recognisable; to be compared with
Ingheads (qv); and with Fletchers Farm (Dent CP, qv), another
possible example but much more heavily altered.
