(Formerly listed as Cattle Sheds incorporating smithy and implement shed at Dawpool Farm. STATION ROAD)

Former cattle sheds incorporating smithy and implement shed. c1865. For James Hegan. Coursed, rock-faced red sandstone, graduated Welsh slate roofs. Irregular range of one storey buildings set round yard to south of ' Former barn and granary at Dawpool Farm' (q.v.) and attached to the barn by a two storey link; the implement shed forms the north east side of the yard and beyond it projects a loose-box incorporating smithy workshop. Four bay loose box has port-slatted casements in ashlar surrounds having rounded sills and chamfered quoins and lintels; smithy in additional end bay has boarded door on left of four-pane window; rounded kneelers, ashlar gable copings, raised ridge with louvred side panels interspersed with glazed lights. Implement shed, adjoining at right angles, has four-bay opening divided by iron posts; enclosed end bay with boarded double doors; plain roof with ashlar gable copings.

Main cattle shed is of four bays with three square-headed doorways at north east end having boarded doors and overlights in chamfered, quoined surrounds; part-slatted casements in openings as before; raised ridge. The south west end of this building is linked by sturdy bull-pens to a row of individual pens with doorways as before under single roof with raised ridge. The two storey link to the barn has open-sided ground floor to east beneath ashlar oculus with sill and hood flanked by small casements. Opposite side of link has square-headed waggon entrance (on axis of main form drive).

These buildings are listed for group value as part of a planned farm complex of which the barn/granary, dated 1862, are the most impressive element. The cattle sheds apart, to be of same date apart from the loose box which has rubble walling of later character facing Station Road; the implement shed may also be of same later date.
