High Branthwaite Farmhouse


Farmhouse. Probably early C18, altered in C19. Slobbered
rubble with large quoins, roof of graduated stone slates and
some blue slates in the lower courses. Rectangular
double-depth 4-room plan.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys and now 3 windows (but probably formerly
5), with the porch slightly offset left and the windows
strongly so. The gabled porch, with slightly-swept roof, has a
segmental-headed opening, a blocked peep-window in the left
side, and stone side benches. The ground floor has a square
8-pane hornless sash to the left and a similar but wider
10-pane sash to the right, both with vertical glazing bars
only. The 1st floor has 4-pane sashes above these, and to the
right of that on the left is a square window with the stools
of a former mullion, and above the porch the outline of
another former 2-light mullioned window is detectable. Gable
chimneys with stone slate cornices. Left gable wall has
through-stones on 3 levels, stone-slate bands on 2 levels, 2
small 1-light windows at ground floor and one similar attic
window; right-hand gable has similar attic window. Rear:
lean-to porch offset right, formerly mullioned window right of
this with double-chamfered surround but now with lowered sill
and 4-pane glazing, a 2-light double-chamfered mullioned
window above the porch, 2 vertically-aligned oblong
stair-windows in the centre (upper with 8 fixed panes), and
oblong windows on each floor to the left, the lower of 3
lights with wooden mullions and small panes and the upper of 6
panes with one opening. Most of these windows have wooden
lintels protected by dripstones.
INTERIOR: housepart to left and parlour to right, with
kitchen, staircase and dairy to rear of these; lateral beam
with cyma-stopped chamfer (end exposed beside staircase but
otherwise boxed); firehood bressumer parallel with gable wall
in kitchen; stone shelving in dairy; dog-legged staircase with
closed string, turned balusters, square newels and
muntin-and-plank panelled side walls; original doors; attic
with 2 pegged collar trusses (carpenter's marks I and II) and
2 pairs of trenched purlins. Interesting example of full
double-depth plan combined with pre-C18 features.
