Description

From NT VBS Yorkshire 1001 Building 3:
"A range of buildings aligned SW-NE, built in four stanges, the oldest at the highest (SW) end. This section, a byre and two other compartments with a loft over, shares with the farmhouse the detail of gable copings without kneelers. Subsequent additions all have square, notched kneelers and the next section, a stable and cart shed with granary over; the three-centred arch to the cartshed initialled WC and dated July 13th 1875. The next bay is probably a loose box built in 1881 (in that year W Handley, Mason, was paid 42-13-6 for Joseph Stonehouse's new barn and loose box at Stork House). The final bay, of which only ruins remain, was almost certainly a boil house, as suggested by the large fireplace. The buildings are all built of squared, coursed sandstone rubble with chevron, diagonal and horizontal tolling. Roofs, where they remain, are of pantiles laid in lime mortar on close lathing." [1]-[7].

Site visit 11/11/99:
There are external steps and the SW gable with a kennel below, and also to the first floor over the cartshed. The inscribed initials and date are of a very similar form to those on a rock by the path 150m to the north, which reads "J H 1875) (see NTSMR 32741) [8].

Site visit 18/07/2000:
No change - the buildings are ruinous and will deteriorate rapidily without remedial action [9]-[12].

The range is depicted on the earliest available maps of the complex (1818), and the 1910 valuation describe 7 cells, comprises, boxes, cart shed, stable and a boil house at the N end [13]-[15].
