- II

Farmhouse (unoccupied at time of inspection, October 1989). Last quarter of C18. Cobbles with some brick; roofs originally thatched, now corrugated iron (over house). Slate and corrugated asbestos over barn/shippon. Plan: house with parlour/kitchen with 2 small service rooms; barn and shippon attached (but of different build, possibly c.1800). House, 2 storeys, regular 2-window range with door to left; all windows with Yorkshire sashes. Rear with 2 ground-floor windows. Barn with large waggon doors and door to shippon; rear projects beyond line of house. The shippon roof is partially collapsed. Interior: remarkably intact fittings and plan. Flag floor; 2 shallow-chamfered ceiling beams with original joists; brick baffle (or heck) partition. Slightly lower iron fire surround with decorative panels and paterae; Victorian range (by Hallmark & Gill of Blackpool). Winder stair to rear. Service rooms divided by axial partition; simple sunken panel doors with strap hinges throughout. The first floor retains its early low partitions, planked, the doors with strap hinges. Roof: side purlins and ridge piece. The house is divided by a full height division. A rare survival of a C18 Fylde cobble-built farmhouse (the only one surviving in Blackpool District).
