BILSDALE MIDCABLE B 1257 East side SE 59 SE 18/9 Spout House (formerly listed 23/6/66 as outbuilding to north-west of Sun Inn) I House, for many years the Sun Inn, now restored and open to public. C16, altered in C17, C18 and later. Coursed roughly-squared sandstone walls, possibly replacing timber framing. Thatched roof with stone stacks. Longhouse plan with later rear extensions. 1 storey and attic, 3½ bays, the half bay being a northward extension of the forehouse. Boarded door in through-passage position in right bay, rebuilt probably in later C17. Restored Yorkshire sash to right; small 2-light window under eaves. In centre bay a 5-light stepped and chamfered mullioned and transomed window, and in left bay a 4-light similar window without transom, both brought from elsewhere, possibly Helmsley Castle. In left return a small round- headed window, with depressed spandrels and a 2-light similar attic window, probably also insertions. Stacks in hearth position and at right end. Small window under eaves above centre bay. Rear elevation blank at left, but for through-passage door. Rear forehouse wall rebuilt in C18 and projecting cellar extension added at right. Interior: forehouse shows open fireplace with fire beam, heck and attached settle; C18 enclosed hearth built within, and C19 cast-iron range inserted, with peat slab and reckon. Chamfered beams and old joists. In downhouse (converted to parlour) rough longitudinal beam with narrowly-chamfered joists; and early C19 inserted fireplace. Small original parlour has dog-leg stair to parlour chamber. Dairy, behind parlour, has stone steps down to lower cellar. Upstairs there are 2 built-in beds in the parlour chamber and chamber over the forehouse - a later addition as shown by smoke-blackening on roof. 2 pairs cruck trusses with high saddle, massive ridge piece and low collar (making awkward doorway). 1 level of stout purlins. An exceptionally well preserved survival.
