WETHERAL WETHERAL NY 45 SE 9/191 Cote House 1. 4.57. II Farmhouse, formerly bastle house. Late C16 or early C17. Large blocks of squared red sandstone to walls, covered with cement rendering at front, green slate roof, rendered brick chimney stacks. 2 storeys, 4 bays with single storeyed extension, built up the slope to the west, but under the same roof: not a typical bastle house. Extremely thick walls, rendered to mask alterations, make it difficult to interpret, but basically as built with C18 and C19 window openings and C19 roof. East gable to river, shows small original windows, now filled, rebuilt upper wall, gable coped with kneeler. Width increased to rear by extension with roof carried over. Doorways between rear extension and original building and between single storeyed extension, probably are original. Windows and doors all C20: single storey extension is whitewashed and internally the roof is carried on three trusses supported by stone corbels, one with tie beam and king post, two with cambered collar beams. Building may have been comparable with The Stonehouse in Naworth East Park. See, R.C.H.M., Shielings & Bastles, 1970. N.B. The compass bearings given by the R.C.H.M. are wrong: for their east read north and south read east.
