Description"Schoose Farm is a model farmstead built in circa 1800 for John Christian Curwen of Workington Hall. The farm buildings are castellated and laid out to an irregular plan. They are constructed of sandstone rubble with a mix of slate and corrugated asbestos roofs. A Gothic gate house at the entrance is flanked by curtain walls, which incorporate cow houses. To the south of the gate house is a pentangular yard and a two-storied barn, beside which is a windmill. The windmill has five storeys and by 1985 the sails and floors had been removed. A large stable block to the north-west housed both farm and colliery horses, although it has since been converted into a farmhouse with adjoining barns...."
