The following building shall be added:


6/32 Kingside Hill (formerly Atkinson's) 11.4.67 II

House (formerly farmhouse) with associated outbuildings (shippon and barn).

Probably C16 in part, modernised and extended in 1734 (dated lintel), with later alterations and C20 extension to rear of house. Walls of mud, sandstone and brick. Roofs of stone and Welsh slate. House originally a 2-unit plan (now a single room to ground floor), with kitchen to right of central entrance (heated by inglenook) and parlour to left. Shippon (with a hayloft) in series with house all of cruck construction and in overall plan a longhouse derivative; later (probably early C18) barn to rear. House, 2 low storeys, 3 window range with end stacks. 1 and 2 light casements, all C20; all window openings (except ground floor, right) look early. Renewed central porch; C18 plank and stud door with strap hinges and dated lintel (1734 IJM). Shippon and haystore with stone front wall (projecting forward of house) with brick patching; 2 doorways and hayloft. Left-hand return of rubble with ventilators and one doorway with one moulded stone canopy. Farmyard elevation of barn, brick, possibly early C18 with perch of sand stone with cranked timber lintel.

Interior: 4 (possibly full) cruck trusses are visible in house and shippon, halved and pegged at apex with collars and erection haunches; these very likely predate 1734. Roughly finished ceiling beams to ground floor of house; the inglenook has been disturbed but the parlour fireplace (stone with bolection moulding and moulded and mantel shelf) is in sits. Barn with principals, collar, tie, side purlins and ridge piece, pegged.
