Thrimby is a small parish 3 m. N.N.W. of Shap.
(1) Thrimby Grange, on the E. border of the parish, is of two storeys; the walls are of rubble and the roofs are slate-covered. It was built in the second half of the 16th century and has 18th-century and later additions on the E. side. The W. front has original mullioned and transomed windows of three and four lights. Above the doorway is a shield-of-arms probably of Salkeld with the initials and date G. and I.S. 1578. There are original three-light windows at the back.
(2) Thrimby, house 700 yards N.W. of (1), has been re-built except for the stable-wing. In the E. wall is a doorway with the initials and date I.S. 1676.
(3) Shapbeck Gate, house 1,100 yards S. of (1), is of two storeys; the walls are of rubble and the roofs are slate-covered. It was built in the 17th century and retains some original windows and an early 18th-century fireplace with a corbelled head.
