High Ramshaw (Plenmeller with Whitfield)
The remote farm of High Ramshaw stands on the north side of the valley of Fell Burn. The former house is a rectangular block with rubble walls. It is built into the hillside so the ground is close to the first floor at the back. The three windows are of 20th century date. This has been a substantial first floor house of bastle-derivative type, of quite reasonable status, with some unusual features such as the cross walls in the basement (if they are original).
