5/117 Dun Cow Rib Farmhouse with wall enclosing garden 25.7.1952 II

Farmhouse, now house. Dated 1616 on lintel, altered and extended. Coursed sandstone rubble with quoins (now ribbon pointed), stone slate roof and stone gable copings with kneelers bearing finials. Two-bay end-baffle-entry plan (with former stable added at left end, which has been altered and is of less interest). Two storeys; doorway at right hand end has chamfered Tudor-arched surround, lintel lettered in relief "1616 AH" (probably = Adam Hoghton), and hollow-moulded hoodmould on top of which is fixed a large old bone; double-chamfered mullioned windows with diamond lattice glazing on both floors, the hoodmoulds of those in the centre run out left over a single light (like a firewindow): 5 and 6 lights at ground floor, 3, 4 and 2 lights above. Chimneys at right gable and at former gable (now junction) to left. Right gable wall has at 1st floor a double-chamfered firewindow with a hoodmould, and towards the rear a jettied garderobe with loop-lights and monopitched roof, now supported from ground level by stone piers. Former stable at left end was formerly a lean-to, but has been raised to form a 2-storey continuation of the house. Rear altered, with substantial modern extensions in similar style and materials. Interior: altered, contains C18 stone fireplace with corbelled jambs, believed to be ex situ: History: probably built by Adam Hoghton: reference Fishwick Goosnargh pp 192-3. Associated with ancient local legend of ghostly giant cow, to whom the bone over the door was believed to belong. Garden wall to front, of random rubble, the front wall with ramped coping and curved inwards to gateway in line with door of house.
