ANDERTON GREENHALGH LANE SD 61 SW 14/2 Greenhalgh Farmhouse 17.4.67 (Formerly listed as "Greenhalgh, Babylon Lane") - II

Farmhouse, probably C17, altered and enlarged at an early period. Coursed sandstone rubble and squared stone, with quoins, slate roof with stone gable copings and gable chimneys. Altered L-shaped 2-bay plan formerly by early addition of outshut to rear of 2nd bay in angle of earlier and shallower outshut to 1st bay. Two storeys; front wall facing garden is of different masonry above ground floor level: lower part of small rubble has 2 double-chamfered mullion windows now of 3 square lights each but with the stool of at least one missing mullion suggesting that they were formerly 6-light windows; upper part of squared rubble has 2 smaller 3-light windows with chamfered flush mullions. Left gable wall has a large external chimney stack with chamfered base and offsets, a lean-to shed in front of this, a continuous dripcourse to the rear of it, with a doorway near the rear corner and a window above. Right gable wall has a doorway near the front corner with chamfered surround and pointed Tudor-arched head, now covered by an added lean-to. Rear of 1st bay has at ground floor a 5-light double-chamfered mullion window with 3 lights blocked and 2 altered as a sliding sash (mullion removed); rear of 2nd bay (the added outshut) has a doorway flanked by square windows. Interior: probably altered and raised in C18: 2nd bay has high ceiling supported by 2 chamfered beams with run-out stops, housed at the front end well above window-head level, and with blocked post mortices in the soffits of the rear ends; a similar beam is incorporated in the partition between the bays, which has a slightly Tudor-arched doorway at the front end; the partition wall to the rear outshut appears to be timber-framed. History: not known, but adjoining barn has lintel of former doorway with raised lettering G possibly I P : 1703 date of alteration of house.
