Spout House

A 19th-century farmstead in Bransdale, typical of that found in the North York Moors. It must have replaced an earlier building for according to a 1782 survey it was tenanted out to a William Petch. “Spout” is an odd name, typically meaning a pipe through which water flows off a roof. As a farm or house or even a field name, it is fairly common, there is a Spout House in neighbouring Bilsdale. The opinion is that the name originally referred to a spring which was the source of a water supply.
