PATTERDALE WITH HARTSOP, HARTSOP, The How Cottage with associated farm buildings

II

Former farmhouse, now used for storage. Probably mid-C17. Random rubble masonry with diminishing stone slate gable-end roof. A virtually unaltered example of the cross-passage and byre plan, with the byre to the left (NW) of the cross- passage. The structure is built into the hillside so that the hayloft above the byre is entered from the rear at ground level in the manner of a bank barn. The house proper is now entered from a central doorway, possibly inserted when the doorway to the right of the fireplace leading in from the cross-passage was blocked. The stone half-winder stair, and the pantry are placed to the rear of the house in an outshut or turret under the catslide roof. The stone chimney hood remains intact. Exterior: the house with 2 2-light C19 windows to 1st floor (one light shuttered one light glazed with 4 panes); 2 similar windows to ground floor, one to either side of door which is planked with strap hinges, and approached by stone steps. An original 1st floor window survives, now blocked but visible internally, 2 lights with chamfered mullion and surround. Byre with half door with wooden lintel and stone weathering. Planked door to cross-passage with strap hinges. 1st floor opening. Axial stone stack with weathering. End elevations with ventilation to hay loft. Blocked 1st floor window to right hand (SE) end. One planked door to rear. INTERIOR: The huge fireplace with massive roughly chamfered lintel, retains its original hearthstone, slate fireback, hot-ash receptacle for oven, and some curing irons. The stone chimney hood survives in its unaltered state (ie it has not-been boxed in, nor has it had a 1st floor fireplace inserted), and is as such comparatively rare. 2 chamfered ceiling beams to ground-floor room with run-out stops. Slate ledge to pantry. Slate stairs to half newel. Roof: 2 trusses with principals pegged and morticed at apex, and tie beam one has a pegged collar, the other raking queen struts. Side purlins and ridge pier Byre roof similar, one truss with queen struts, the other with half-dovetailed collar. The corbelled chimney stack is visible from the hay loft. Roughly constructed manger to byre. The 2-bay stable to rear of The How Cottage, and the 5-bay barn to the SW of the cottage are probably contemporary and are included in the listing.
