Beck Farmhouse and attached barn

II

Farmhouse and attached barn. Probably late C17 or early C18;
altered. House of white-painted rubble (side and rear
unpainted), slate roof. L-plan formed by 2-unit single-depth
house on north-south axis facing west, with added lean-to
outshut to rear, and barn as projecting north-west wing.
EXTERIOR: house: 2 storeys and attic, 4 windows (the 4th
blocked). The ground floor has a square-headed doorway offset
left, protected by a gabled C20 wooden and glazed porch, a
square window to the left, and an oblong 2-light window and a
narrow rectangular 1-light window to the right, all these
windows with altered glazing; the 1st floor has 3 square
windows with altered glazing and a small blocked 1-light
window with chamfered reveal to the right. A detectable change
in the masonry above the 1st-floor windows suggests that the
eaves may have been raised. Gable chimneys, that to the right
short, square and corbelled out, with 2 prominent stone-slate
courses carried round. This chimney and the 1-light windows to
the right on each floor below it (which appear to have been
fire-windows), indicating that the house was built with a
firehood, are the external features which suggest a late C17
or early C18 date. Left gable covered by barn; right-hand
gable wall has small attic windows flanking the chimney. Barn:
of slobbered random rubble, has doorway offset right, 2
windows to the left and one to the right, all with rubble
voussoirs. INTERIOR: not inspected.
