- II

Farmstead with attached tower, 1834. Sandstone, house of watershot coursing, remainder of rubble, roof of slates and some stone slates. Roughly U-shaped plan. The only feature of interest is the west (rear) facade which is roughly symmetrical with high embattled 2-stage tower dominating the barn in the centre, which has a tall 2-centred arch with a smaller pointed arched opening above. Each gabled wing has in the apex a very large quatrefoil panel enclosing a small square window, 3 windows at ground floor and one at 1st floor, all in pointed arches. History: Built by the manufacturing Hargreaves family in 1834, probably as eye-catcher in view from Oak Hill (see Ainsworth Homesteads pp.24-27 and Mannex Directory Mid Lancs 1854 p.394).
