SEDBERGH

SD69SE DOWBIGGIN LANE, Dowbiggin
162-1/6/332 (North side (off))
Kilnbeck Farmhouse and attached barn

II

Farmhouse with attached bank barn. House probably early to mid
C18, altered; barn probably C19, also altered. House of thin
coursed sandstone rubble with quoins, graduated blue slate
roof with stone riggings; barn of roughly-coursed mixed rubble
with corrugated sheet roof. Linear plan on
north-east/south-west axis, the house forming the eastern half
and facing south, 1:2 bays (the first probably not service
rather than domestic) and probably double-depth.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys and 2 windows, symmetrical except for the
first bay, with a square-headed doorway in the centre and 2
oblong windows on each floor. The doorway has a C20 door and
pitched stone-slate above (as if for a gabled porch); the
windows are all 8-pane hornless sashes with vertical glazing
bars only. The bay to the left has a part-glazed doorway with
a floating stone-slate course above. The BARN to the left, on
a descending slope, has a square-headed wagon doorway to the
right-hand half, with a stone-slate drip-course above, 2
courses of through-stones to the left and one small square
window to the lower level.
INTERIOR not inspected.
A good example of a typical sturdy Dales house, forming an
excellent feature in a striking landscape.
