WHICHAM, SILECROFT, Range of Buildings immediately NE of Cross House Farmhouse

II

Range of buildings originally comprising a dwelling, storage area, threshing barn and horse engine house (noted all residential Jun. 2016). Probably early C19. Random rubble; graduated Westmoreland slate roof. The principal range lies parallel to the village street and consists of a former single-storey, single-unit cottage (rendered, with one large 6-pane housed sash window of 1901 and a small 4-pane casement to left of doorway); a storage area with external stone steps leading to doorway set under a small gable (and with two small openings, the surrounds patched in brick); and the threshing barn (with a large wagon entrance in a projecting extension under catslide), all in series. To the rear of the threshing barn is a horse engine house, its roof intact, the entrance widened (one jamb rebuilt in brick). It appears that the horse worked underneath the gearing and machinery and this example is likely to be amongst the earliest in the county. Cross House Farmhouse itself (dated 1901) is not included in this listing.
