RANGE OF BUILDINGS TO NORTH WEST OF MONK FARMHOUSE - Allendale - List Entry

  • Description

    Range of buildings, formerly partly domestic. C16/C17, perhaps incorporating earlier fabric, with later alterations. Rubble, heavy quoins, stone dressings to some openings. North-west slope of roof stone flags, south-east slope slate. Both external elevations and internal walls show a variety of openings, some blocked, of different dates, including a number of doorways with monolithic flat-pointed or round-arched heads. One internal wall towards the south-west end of the range has a blocked door with a 2-centred pointed arch. The north- east gable has a blocked central door with a monolithic flat-pointed head and is capped by a square dovecote carried on a row of 4 corbels, with a pyramidal stone slate roof. The dovecote is a later adaptation of a large stack, the massive lintel of the 1st floor fireplace remaining visible internally. Monk Farm is traditionally said to be a medieval property of Hexham Priory. The range of buildings preserves a number of features of bastle house type.....
