Rowan Park Farm

 Sitting near the waters edge Rowan Park was a small holding, the dwelling was never known to house a working family, but two brothers called Smith did use it while building most of the stone walls at the top of the valley, it also had a round brick oven in the kitchen, and like many of the buildings in the Lake District, they were made entirely of dry stone, no cement was used in their construction.

 The roof edges were crow stepped in order to secure the slates from strong winds, for a better look at a traditional barn, see the Bowderthwaite Farm.
