SD 52NE CUERDALE ROACH BRIDGE
5/5 Darwen Side Farmhouse
Farmhouse, dated 1619 but enlarged C18 and c.1900. Stone with slate roof.
L-shaped plan with rear extension. Two storeys and four bays, with stable door in 1st bay and house door in 3rd bay; apart from the first, all openings are chamfered with hoodmoulds, and the windows are sashed.
Better masonry to 4th bay at ground floor, where was formerly a 4-light window shows it to be original; although heightened in C18, this section now appears uniform with the even higher left hand end of late C19.
Datestone at right end at 1st floor level, lettered in relief: E T with 1619 rampant beast (lion?) between the letters. In right hand return wall is an original 2-light double chamfered stone mullion window. Wing at rear, of masonry similar to 4th bay, has 2 C18 chamfered stone mullion windows.
