14/06/84 Low Branthwaites
(Formerly Listed as:
Low Branthwaites, barn attached to
north and barn attached to south)


Farmhouse with attached barns, now house and store. Probably
early to mid C18, enlarged and altered; recently remodelled.
Roughly coursed sandstone rubble with some through-stones,
painted white except for the barn at the south end which is
slobbered; stone slate roof with blue slate in the upper half.
Single-depth 1-unit plan on north-south axis facing west with
a wide rear wing (probably an early addition) and the former
barns attached at both ends.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys and 2 windows, with the former barns
continued at the same level to left and right. The house has a
C20 rubble and part-glazed gabled porch to the left, two
2-light casements to the right, with plain surrounds painted
black, 2 similar but more widely-spaced windows above, and a
cut-down ridge chimney at the junction with the to right. The
former barn to the left (now integrated with the house) has a
small square window at ground floor and 3 rectangular windows
above (probably inserted). The barn to the right has an
asymmetrical segmental-headed doorway at the junction, with
rubble voussoirs (probably a reduced wagon doorway), a
square-headed doorway in the centre, and a small and a large
oblong window to the right. At the rear the broad gable of the
rear wing has a square 2-light mullioned stair-window to the
left, a rectangular window to the right with altered glazing
and a square 2-light casement above this (all these with stone
slate drip-bands), and a gable chimney; and attached to the
north side is a lean-to addition. The former barn to the north
has a former wagon doorway with an inserted glazed screen.
INTERIOR: 2 roughly-finished beams; C19 plank partition at
junction with barn to right; one C18 collar truss in house and
a similar truss in each of the former barns; otherwise
