2/89 Elmhirst Farmhouse and Cottage (formerly listed as 11.11.66 Elmhirst Farmhouse, Worsbrough Dale) - II Farmhouse now 2 dwellings. Probably late C17 with earlier core, much altered. Coursed rubble sandstone, C20 cement-tile roof. Elongated 2-storey range, 6 windows to 1st floor, partial outshut to rear. Large quoins. Original house-part on left has part-glazed door in quoined surround flanked by 3-light casements with quoined reveals, 2-light window on right has recessed mullion. Converted outbuilding under same roof on right has large 16-pane sash, C20 3-light mullioned window and C20 French window. 1st floor: all 2-light horizontally-sliding sashes in quoined openings, small window over door on left. Shaped kneelers, chamferd gable copings, 2 ridge stacks each with band. Rear: arched doorway on left possibly of early date, some sash windows. Interior: cruck truss exposed in partition wall between the 2 dwellings has wall spurs set below tie beam which is morticed for infill, collar beneath cruck ends clasping remains of diagonally-set ridge now much lower than present roofline. The truss and long-house form of the building suggest a late medieval date for the original structure. Ancestral home of the Elmhirst family.
