Architect probably Walter Newall, circa 1830. Courtyard
steading, detached tall east range with mill wheel, 2-storey
3-bay farmhouse incorporated at south. All rubble-built,
mostly with contrasting pink ashlar dressings - mostly
whitewashed at south and at west; graded slate roofs.
Steading: east range: barn at left with high winnowing door
and 2 tiers slit ventilators; 2-bay cartshed at right with
loft above; wheelhouse on east wall with iron overshot wheel,
privy above tail-race; brick lean-to at north. 3-bay stable,
also with loft, adjoins east gable of house; other ranges
single storey; north range with pink rubble coursers below
eaves, and tall modern haybarn built against courtyard
elevation. West range with louvered roof ventilators:
detached parallel range to west. Openings mostly boarded and
or glazed. House: central gabled porch to south and ground
floor bipartites inserted; narrow brick outshot to court.
Attribution to Newall on stylistic grounds. Category B for
quality of steading.
