Potgill House


Small farmhouse; unoccupied at times of inspection (October
and June 1994). Probably early C18; altered. Slobbered rubble
with quoins, the west gable rendered; graduated stone slate
roofs and some blue slate to the outshut. Single-depth 2-unit
plan on east-west axis facing south, with a large rear outshut
to the east half and an added lean-to to west half.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys and 2 windows; with a square-headed
doorway offset right of centre, with a plain surround, a board
door and the gable-line of a former pitched canopy above; and
2 square top-hung casements on each floor, those at ground
floor 6-paned and those above 9-paned. Slender wrought-iron
gutter brackets. Gable chimneys, that to the right corbelled
from 1st floor. The right-hand return wall has through-stones
on 3 levels, one small rectangular window on each floor to the
rear of the corbelled chimney, both 4-paned, and a slightly
larger rectangular window at 1st floor of the outshut, with
plain glazing. Rear: the almost full-height outshut has a low
oblong 9-pane window to the left and a 4-pane sash to the
right, both with monolith lintels and stone slate drip-stones;
the lean-to to the right has a 4-pane fixed window, and the
rear wall of the main range has a small window partly covered
by the roof of the lean-to.
INTERIOR not inspected, but believed to contain lateral
ceiling beams.
