SCARISBRICK MOORFIELD LANE SD 41 SW 9/32 No.54 (Hill Farmhouse) (formerly listed as "No.54 (Farmhouse at west end of Moorfield Lane")) 11.10.1968 - II

Farmhouse, now house. Dated 1650 in gable of wing; altered. Coursed squared sandstone with quoins, stone slate roof. T-plan: 2-bay wing on east-west axis, with a single-bay main range on the north side (probably replacing an earlier hallrange). Two storeys; the gable of the wing has on each floor a recessed 3-light casement with deeply chamfered reveal, (probably formerly stone-mullioned), near the apex a datestone with incised lettering O S O (the "O" letters in the top line each trailing a double H R R 1650 M tail); the left return wall of the wing has a hoodmould to a blocked opening into the front bay, a large external chimney stack to this bay, finished with a modern brick chimney, and an inserted window to the rear bay; the rear gable is painted white, has an inserted door and large glazed porch at ground floor, and inserted windows in and beside an old window at 1st floor. The main range of graduated coursed masonry has at the front a doorway abutting the wing, and one horizontal rectangular window on each floor, both with surrounds like those in the wing but only slightly recessed; and at the back a single-storey extension, and a gable chimney. Interior: wing has stop-chamfered beams in both parts, a lateral partition wall of brick at ground floor but timber-framed with wattle-and-daub panels at 1st floor (concealed); kitchen (in main range) has a rectangular stone fireplace (concealed). History: not known, but wing appears to be earlier part, and its external chimney stack suggests a parlour fireplace in a formerly larger house.
