    DSCF0700.JPG ok so this particular farm house is known in the area and gets urbexed a few times a year but I never see piks or posts on any forums, the farms been derelict many years and is basically just a shell empty since the 60s it still retains some nice features if you look hard enough and has its roof so its not totally open to the elements although eh lack of windows takes it toll.

    HISTORY
    the farm was built in the 1600s and has been passed down through the same family for generations
    1 James Cowgill bapt 10 Jan 1640/1, Thornton in Craven, bur 6 Dec 1724, Thornton in Craven, m 17 Jun 1675, Thornton in Craven, his cousin, Jenetta Cowgill, b 1638, bur 9 Sep 1710 (another source has 1711), Thornton in Craven, dau of James and Anne (Brown) Cowgill. James described on the burial record as "pannificus" (i.e., hosier and clothier). The Marlfield Papers state that James, who already held tenancy of Fiddling Clough, signed agreements on 12 and 13 Sep 1709 “enacted between those who controlled the Lister-Kaye estate, and the brothers James Cowgill … and Bartholomew Cowgill for the freehold of Marlfield. For an annual rent of two shillings payable to the heirs of Thomas Lister on the Feast Days of Pentecost and St Martin the Bishop of Winter, the freehold of Fiddling Clough and all related lands was granted to James Cowgill.” This is probably the James Cowgill who was a church warden at St Mary’s, Thornton in Craven, for the year 1694. James d intestate.

    the building consists of a main house with tree small upstairs bedrooms , next door is a small kitchen with a rather latge living room and another two small rooms above and next door is a workshop with a hay loft and above that another small room ; DSCF0655.JPG DSCF0656.JPG DSCF0658.JPG DSCF0661.JPG DSCF0662.JPG DSCF0664.JPG DSCF0663.JPG DSCF0665.JPG DSCF0666.JPG DSCF0667.JPG DSCF0669.JPG DSCF0674.JPG DSCF0676.JPG DSCF0678.JPG DSCF0679.JPG DSCF0682.JPG DSCF0681.JPG DSCF0683.JPG DSCF0684.JPG DSCF0685.JPG DSCF0687.JPG DSCF0688.JPG DSCF0689.JPG DSCF0692.JPG DSCF0694.JPG DSCF0699.JPG DSCF0702.JPG
    Farmhouse, cottage and possible workshop, all now derelict, late C18 and C19.
    Rubble stone, slate roof. Two storeys except at left hand end where crossfall
    creates three. The oldest part appears to be the right hand end, which
    has a symmetrical front. Plain stone surround to the doorway and pitched
    stone hood. Recessed square mullion windows of three lights to each side,
    and of four lights over. Gable stacks. The left hand end has flush square
    mullion windows and is of three bays, without stacks. The third bay projects
    slightly and is heavily quoined which suggests that the fourth bay with
    similar detail, is an infill.
