SEDBERGH

SD69NW HOWGILL LANE, Howgill
162-1/1/358 (West side (off))
Gate Farmhouse

II

Farmhouse. Probably late C17 or early C18; altered. Roughly
coursed slobbered rubble with quoins and some through-stones,
graduated Cumbrian slate roof. Single-depth 2-unit plan on
east-west axis facing south, plus a 3rd unit at the east end.
2 storeys and 3 windows (grouped 2:1, not including a
stair-window between). Offset left of centre is a gabled porch
which has a square-headed outer doorway with a monolithic
lintel and side benches; to the left of the porch is a
stone-slate drip-course over the ground floor, and 2
rectangular windows on each floor, all with C20 glazing and
stone lintels. To the right of the porch is a rectangular
stair-window, and further right one rectangular window on each
floor (slightly offset), all these also with C20 glazing. The
left gable has through-stones on 2 levels, and a corbelled
square chimney with a stone slate band; and there is a ridge
chimney to the right of the 2nd bay. Rear not inspected.
INTERIOR not inspected, but the outer openings show that the
housepart is to the left, and the position of the stair-window
suggest an unusual plan.
