Many farms are named after the people who lived there, it is most probable that this one was named after the Harrisons in the 1600s. It is another old farm holding but showing different architectural features as it has rounded chimneys and pointed windows. Originally it had five bedrooms, four on the front and one at the back but this has been recently made into a bathroom.
Perched on a raised piece of ground the situation is beautiful with fine views right up the valley to the Pikes, Crinkle Crags, and Bowfell.
Early records show a stock of 158 sheep. The mark was forked both ears and the smit mark was an inverted ‘V’ on the nearside. A while back the sheep were given an ‘I’ face burn but this was never very good so that it was finally left off.
