GRASSINGTON OLD MOOR LANE SE 06 NW (west side) Yarnbury 2/28 The Smithy 23.3.82 GV II Smithy, now house. Late C18 - early C19, converted mid C20. Gritstone rubble, graduated stone slate roof. 1 1/2 storeys, 2 bays. Irregular quoins. South front has glazed double doors recessed in the probably original cart entrance which has irregularly quoined jambs and single-block lintel. Square C20 frame to window right of centre, the opening has poorly shaped sill and lintel, but no jambs; a similar window below eaves to right, above a blocked opening probably a doorway. Restored kneelers, gable copings, end stacks. Lean-to to right not of special interest. A poorly-built but very important building in the lead mining complex, as by the early C19 hundreds of ponies were used to haul ore from the mines and packhorses carried the ore to Gargrave, Skipton, Pateley Bridge and beyond. The west end of the walling appears to have been rebuilt at conversion.
