30.3.66 (Formerly listed as
Large house. C17, altered 1750-56 by James Paine, for Allison. Mostly dressed magnesian limestone, with some coursed rubble, stone slate roof. H-plan. Two- and-a-half storeys, symmetrical; plinth, quoins, moulded dripcourses on 2 levels, carried round the whole; set-back centre has central double doors with architrave and consoles supporting a pediment which breaks the dripcourse, two 12-pane sashes at ground floor and 2 above, a Diocletian window at 2nd floor (all these with plain surrounds), a hoodmould to a former mullioned window in the gable, gable coping with kneelers and finial; C18 rainwater head in each angle, narrow diagonal stairlight on each floor of right-hand angle. Gable of each wing has one window on each floor: ground-floor Venetian window breaking the dripcourse, 12- and 9-pane windows above, those in the right wing sashed but those in the left all glazed but blocked internally by a chimney stack which rises to break through the gable coping off-centre; otherwise, each gable has a hoodmould like that in the centre, gable coping with kneelers, and finial (to right-hand gable). Most of these windows break the remains of former cross windows, and there are similar remains in both re-entrant walls. Return wall of left wing, 6 bays, has windows like those at front, but with single-storey semicircular bay windows to 1st and 4th, with parapet, 12-pane sashes in the 2nd and 3rd bays, and at 2nd floor a Diocletian window in the centre and a small sash in each outer bay. Rear: inter alia a cross window at 2nd floor of rear gable of right wing, suggesting original form of other fenestration before C18 alterations. Interior: altered, the present principal feature of interest being the 2-storey entrance hall with C18 staircase (open string, scrolled brackets, 2 slim turned balusters per tread, panelled newels and ramped handrail); and stone flagged floor. History: was used as school during C19, with additions (now demolished) and alterations. References: RCHM Rural Houses of West Yorkshire 1400-1830 1986) p. 96.

Images of England
Images of England was a photographic record of every listed building in England, created as a snap shot of listed buildings at the turn of the millennium. These photographs of the exterior of listed buildings were taken by volunteers between 1999 and 2008. The project was supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
