Yorkshire Laithe House

Yorkshire Laithe House. This is the remains of a typical Yorkshire laithe house which is a dual-purpose building, both dwelling and barn. The laithe houses of this area and period are rectangular in shape, the barn taking up about two thirds of the building and the dwelling about one third. There is a cellar that extends only under the dwelling. The design dates from the 17th century and was used widely from the 18th century to the 19th century. Most of the laithe houses were built around the time of the Inclosure Acts of the 18th and 19th centuries.

    Nice photo and information about the structure. It's interesting the stonework variation. The foremost part appears more precise with some sort of mortar and the stones laid farther back, either side, are different.

      Yes, my assumption is that the house has been allowed to decay and the back has been rebuilt as a dry stone wall.

        That was my assumption as well. The original stonework is so much better than the rest - assuming the front part is the original part.

      Thanks. In this version I've darkened the sky too much and introduced some colour banding which I missed, never mind, I'm stuck with it now.

        I reckon it works though. The light along the front wall, and darkened sky contrast each other well.
