Coursed sandstone rubble with quoins, stone slate roof with gable copings and kneelers, one chimney at left gable; moulded bands on 2 levels carried over the heads of windows at ground and 1st floors. Present front door on south side in modern single storey gabled porch offset right of centre; ground floor has a large 2- light mullioned window to the left, and a small window to the right, 1st floor has 2 double-chamfered windows of 3 stepped lights; 2nd floor has 2 oval windows in square surrounds. Left return wall has 2 windows on each floor, at 2nd floor both oval, but below this all different: those on the left are both of 3 recessed lights, each light having a moulded surround, but that at 1st floor is ogee-headed; those on the right both 2 lights with chamfered surrounds, but that at 1st floor has round-headed lights with shallow moulding. There is a square moulded panel for a datestone on the band between ground floor windows. The projecting porch to the rear of this side has large quoins, moulded doorway with large lintel, above which a band carries round the whole; and a round-headed light at 1st floor level of the rear wall. To the rear the 2-bay 2-storey house of coursed sandstone rubble has a slate roof, gable chimneys, and on the west side 2 windows each floor, that on the right at ground floor recessed with 2 mullions remaining and a hoodmould, others altered (east side wall has been brought forward). Interior: large-framing timber partition wall to full height, finishing with truss which has large tie-beam, curved struts and collar, and carries trenched purlins; quarter-turn stone staircase with open string and turned balusters (now to 1st floor only); narrow beams,some with roll moulding, others small chamfer; 1st floor parlour with moulded plaster decoration to chimneypiece and to panels of partition wall, all foliated; decorated door to this room with 2 full-height round-headed panels which have gryphons carved in the heads and are surrounded by grouped patterns. History: probably the birthplace of John Horrocks, founder of Preston cotton firm Horrocks Miller and Co., in late C18. An unusual type of house for the area with good internal features.
