(Visited 1975) Monksmoor, farmhouse and outbuildings. Built on three sides of a wide court; probably seventeenth century. Facing south, two-storeys with four square evenly spaced windows in the upper floor of a wide front. Three windows down, with doorway not centrally placed but towards the west end. The west side wall is partly slate-hung. There is a stack at each end, east and west. The north side of the house has been curiously extended, with a long sloping roof. At the east end of this extension, in the north wall, there is a projecting stepped chimney rising in four steps to a chimney standing well clear of the roof. The fireplace in the kitchen was originally of the same width as the base but has been narrowed in recent years. The east side wall has a doorway from the court into the kitchen.
The house is built in stone as far as can be seen, but some of the walls are covered. The roof is slate. A fine long barn and cowhouse stands at the east side of the court. Stone steps lead to an upper floor, through a doorway with a slate canopy. The outbuildings have been repaired in places with bricks. A stream runs under the court to an outflow at the lower southern end.
