SD6791 FROSTROW LANE, Frostrow
162-1/22/338 (North side)
16/08/88 Fell Yeat Farmhouse at Side
(Formerly Listed as:


Small farmhouse, now house. Probably mid to later C17, perhaps
containing some earlier fabric; probably altered in C19,
derelict and used as sheephouse in 1980s; recently restored
and part rebuilt. Coursed mixed rubble with quoins, stone
slate roof. Two-unit gable-entry plan with almost continuous
full-height rear outshut.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys and 2 windows, with an almost full-width
slate course over the ground floor; this has restored
mullioned windows of 4 and 2 lights offset to the right, and
near the left end an opening like a narrow doorway which may
formerly have been a fire-window. The 1st floor has restored
2-light windows over those at ground floor. All these windows
have renewed chamfered flush mullions. At each gable is a
square stone chimney, both corbelled out but that at the
right-hand gable subsequently under-built with an external
stack. The left gable wall has a large square-headed doorway
offset towards the rear with a drip-course over it (a porch to
protect this doorway under construction at time of inspection,
1994), and a recently-inserted 1-light window above. The
right-hand gable wall has a small 1-light window at 1st floor
to the rear of the chimney. Rear: left (north-east) end has
one 3-light mullioned window on each floor, both with broad
chamfered flush mullions, and that at ground floor with a
stone slate band over it (this window apparently had 4 lights
in 1988); to the right, a recently inserted window at ground
floor and a small square window under the eaves.
INTERIOR: former timber partition to outshut (muntins with
tongue-and-groove panelling at ground floor, which survived
only in fragmentary state in 1988, wattle-and-daub on plain
studs at 1st floor) now mostly replaced with C20 partition and
staircase, but a post mounted on a stone base approx. 2 metres
from the gable-entry remains, together with a chamfered
framing plate at 1st floor, segmentally undercut for a former
doorway at its west end. Forms group with bank barn approx. 30
metres south (qv).
