Details

SY 09 SW ROCKBEARE RAG LANE 3/116 Courtyard of farm buildings - approximately 20 metres east of Rockbeare Manor GV II

Model farm comprising a group of farmbuildings around a courtyard. It is the home farm of nearby Rockbeare Manor (q.v.). Probably circa 1820, some C19 and C20 alterations. Flemish bond red brick; slate roofs. Group of contemporary dairy farmbuildings symmetrically arranged around a courtyard and backing onto the C18 stables and coach house (q.v.). At the eastern end is a large barn or milking parlour between the courtyard and road. From each end low blocks containing animal stalls project forward either side of the courtyard, those to right (south) rebuilt in C20; then at the front (western) end are similar shaped 2-storey blocks. Both look like 2-room plan cottages with west end stacks but the right one is a dairy, the other includes a store. The barn or milking chamber is long and relatively tall and contains a full height round-headed archway with limestone imposts and keystone. Apart from a small doorway at the left end it is otherwise blind to the road. To the courtyard however there are 2 wide windows right of the archway. As with all the original flat-topped apertures they have brick skewback arches over. The first floor windows are unglazed, those on the ground floor have C20 glass. To left of the archway is a plank door with a blind window above. On the inside on the archway are doorways either side and to right a loading hatch. The roof is hipped each end. Inside the left end is open to the roof with a first floor gallery on twisted balusters at the archway end. The roof is of C19 king post trusses. The left (northern) stalls are original, although there is some remodelling. The 2 left side doorways are original. The other 2 and associated windows have been rearranged. The stalls opposite are wholly C20. The dairy and cottage project into the courtyard. Both have 2-window fronts with C19 first floor casements with glazing bars. The dairy has a door with an unglazed window to left. The other cottage has a wider doorway, another glazed casement and also a second doorway at the left end. This was probably the dairyman's cottage. Both have roofs hipped each end. An attractive model dairy farm. Rockbeare Manor (q.v.), the stables and coach houses (q.v.) and this farmyard comprise a very little-altered group with a minimum of later alterations. Set in landscaped grounds the group is most evocative of the Georgian and Regency period.
