Farmhouse. Dated 1670, with C20 additions and alterations. Coursed squared gritstone with ashlar dressings, quoins, coped gables with moulded kneelers, ridge and gable ashlar stacks, and a Welsh slate roof. West elevation of 2 storeys and attics, 4 bays, with a former doorway against the ridge stack giving a lobby entrance plan. The doorway, with a massive lintel and a quoined surround, is now blocked, with inserted coupled 4 x 3 pane glazing bar sashes standing on a masonry base. To the north of the former doorway is the present doorway with C20 door. At the north end, an altered 3-light chamfered mullioned window. To the south of the earlier doorway is a single-light C17 window, and, at the west end, a modern 2-light casement in an earlier surround. The window and doorway heads are linked by a string course, which steps upwards over the original doorway. At first floor level are 2 unaltered 3-light chamfered mullioned windows beneath individual drip moulds, together with a single-light C17 opening and a later 2-light chamfered mullioned window. There are 2 gabled dormers, with coped gables, moulded kneelers, and ball finials to the gable apex. These have 3-light chamfered mullioned windows beneath drip mouldings. The north gabled dormer apex carries a plaque inscribed 'I M N 1670'. The south dormer has a C18 firemark. Windows are generally leaded casements; those to the attics appear to be early. The remodelling and extension to the rear was carried out in 1988. Listing NGR: SK3552461808
