Herringbone-tooled coursed sandstone, that in later part of fine quality. Pantiled roof to lower part, graduated greenslate roof on main (later) house; stone stacks, ridges, gable copings and kneelers. Linear plan.

Main entrance front: Downhouse 2 storeys, raised from 1½ probably in early C19, 3 irregular bays and an added outhouse bay at left. Cross-passage door at right 5 panels, top glazed, in alternate- block flush jambs with dated lintel. Modern window to left in chamfered opening, probably once stone-mullioned. Further left a stable-type door to the back kitchen, with reset datestone initialled PC above. Picket gate entrance to outhouse. Two 16-pane sashes on first floor. Large ridge stack, and small chimney at eaves on left.

Main house 2 taller storeys, 3 bays, symmetrical. Raised, chamfered alternating-block quoins, on front only. Central blind doorway with finely-tooled quoined jambs and false voussoirs in extended lintel with dated key. First-floor band breaks forward over keystone, with initials J.C. Flanking 3-light transomed Yorkshire sashes with glazing bars in plain raised surround. Similar first- floor right window, new 30-pane sash at first floor left and blank central window panel, all in raised, keyed surrounds with slightly- projecting cills. Corniced and banded end stacks; curved kneelers.

Right return blank but for small attic window in blocked loading opening. Left (outhouse) return has stable and loading doors. Rear elevation of main house has 2 stone-mullioned windows on each floor, 3-light below and 2-light above. Downhouse blank but for cross-passage door in plain opening at left and a few small windows, 2 inserted; much alteration of masonry at right.

Interior: Cross-passage right wall is original with chamfered doorway to main house. This has good woodwork throughout, doors of 4 fielded panels, panelled window shutters, architraves and dado panelling.

Hart Hall .....

Forehouse has firebeam with deep moulded and dentilled cornice, panels above. Panelled cupboards flank fireplace within alcove. This part of house has joists with quarter-round moulding. Kitchen has chamfered plain fire beam and boarded cupboard on right; cupboard with C17-type small panels at left. Late C18 stone fireplace, with old reckon, in back kitchen.

Roof structure not seen but said to have principal rafters formed from re-used cruck blades, possibly from 1684 house (R.C.H.M. report).

A very good example ofa serial rebuilding, converting a dales longhouse into spacious living quarters while providing separate farmbuildings (q.v.).
