SD50SW PIMBO LANE 783-1/4/56 (West side) 25/06/73 Bounty Farmhouse (Formerly Listed as: SKELMERSDALE AND HOLLAND PIMBO LANE Bounty Farmhouse and adjoining barn)

GV II

Small farmhouse, now store, and unoccupied at time of survey. Probably early C17, enlarged and altered in later C17, enlarged and altered in C19 and subsequently; and dated 1667 and 1869 on a datestone of latter date at rear. Coursed sandstone rubble with some remains of cruck and timber-framing, stone slate roof on 2 levels. Irregular plan formed by a 2-bay main range with a wing added to the rear of the first in the later C17, and a one-bay addition at the left end. The main range, 2 low storeys and 2 windows, has a blocked square-headed doorway offset to the right, with a chamfered lintel, a small window close to the junction with the addition to the left and a larger one above this, both now boarded, one former window on each floor to the right, both blocked with stone, and a timber wallplate under the eaves. Its north gable wall has been removed at ground floor to make a cart shed (the lintel supported by a cast-iron column), exposing a former rear wall of square framing with wattle-and-daub panelling, including one blocked panel which has pegholes in the rails (probably for fixing former wooden mullions), a stop-chamfered axial beam with vacant mortices of a former timber-framed partition, and purlins with vacant windbrace housings at both ends. The rear wing, of coursed thin sandstone rubble, has: on the north side, a collapsed former dairy, a 2-light mullioned fire-window near the rear corner, and a formerly mullioned window at 1st floor (now boarded); in the gable wall a blocked one-light window offset left at 1st floor; in the south side a doorway, a loading doorway above this, and a datestone inscribed: 1869/ MB/ 1667. The addition at the south end is 2 higher storeys with one window on each floor of both front and rear walls, all with wedge lintels (and boarded at time of survey), and a doorway in the rear wall. Internal inspection shows that most of the boarded windows are small-paned sliding sashes of 2 or 3 lights. INTERIOR: main range has a large lateral beam in the 1st bay with a broach stop, and bottom half of cruck blade in the partition between the bays; rear wing has a gable-end inglenook with full-width chamfered bressumer and inserted stone fireplace, and a stop-chamfered beam with original joists; and an upper room with stone-flagged floor. HISTORY: probably originated as a cruck-framed long-house, with stone parlour wing added in late C17 and main range rebuilt in stone, and partly raised, in early C19. Forms a group with former barn approx 2m south (qv). (Private Report and Surveys: Miller G: 1981-1990).
