House. "IMS 1691" (John and Mary Scott) on door and porch lintels but with C19 and C20 additions. Hammer-dressed stone with graduated stone slate roof. 3-unit double-depth plan with 4 bays and 2 storeys. Quoins and projecting plinth. Single-storey porch has moulded door surround, segmental-arched lintel, enriched spandrels and date
inscribed above, and a parapet which forms a crude but classically derived entablature. Three 6-light ground floor windows have double-chamfered mullions and hoodmoulds. 4,
4, 2 and 4-light chamfered windows on first floor. Many windows retain original leaded lights and vertical iron bar. Coped gables with kneelers. Chimneys have moulded bands.
2, 3 and 4-light mullioned windows and later sash windows to sides and rear. Later additions to left, later porch to right and a single storey early C18 addition to rear right.
Interior: the rear right room (kitchen) has a gable-end door of studded oak with the initials IS carved on it. The room is sheltered by a plank and muntin screen and as well as a
C17 well cupboard with carved doors and butterfly hinges has a bolection-moulded fire surround with coved cornice mantel.
First floor cupboard with H-hinges and "MS 1692" carved at head. A well-preserved house retaining many of its original fittings. The double-depth plan is of a particularly early
date for the house of yeoman farmer. W.J. Smith, "A Place in History", Pennine Magazine, Vol.6, No.3.
