- II

House. Dated 1664, restored C19. Gritstone rubble, graduated grey slates to roof front, stone slates to rear. 2 storeys, 3 bays, with single-storey porch between bays 2 and 3 and a lobby entry plan; a 2-storey, 2-bay added range with parallel roof to rear bays 1 and 2. Quoins. The porch entrance has a flat lintel and stone benches; the inner board door is in a deeply chamfered and slightly cambered archway. A restored square window under hoodmould, with plain surround and C20 frame to ground floor, bay 1; otherwise recessed chamfered mullion windows throughout, of 4 and 5 lights with hoodmoulds flanking the porch; of 2,3 (now 2) and 2 lights to first floor. Very large corniced ashlar stack to ridge above porch; smaller ridge stack-far left. Interior: A drawbar survives inside the main entrance door. A dated lintel, possibly repositioned, with raised lettering, " I B 1674 M B",is in the opening between the front and rear ranges of the house. Unless it is repositioned it appears to date the addition of the 2 rooms, probably service or store rooms. The initials are of John Buck and his wife, whose family tenanted the farm from Fountains Abbey and bought it after the Dissolution. A.
