Owley Farm, farmhouse and outbuildings. Situated on the east side of the road at Owley with extensive outbuildings on both sides. Probably 18th century; listed. Faces south and is two storeys with a rather long slate hung front. Four casement windows up, two down, with centre door. The doorway has a stone porch with gable roof in slate. The west end wall is slate hung and so is the stack above. There is also a stack at the east end wall. The gable roof is newly slated. There is a lean-to type extension along the rear wall, but no stack. All built in stone. Occupier says that about halfway in the east half of the house there is a thick stone wall rising upto the roof ridge, suggesting that the eastern quarter of the house is later than the main part. This seems to be in agreement with the rather long appearance of the house.
