9/35 Round House in centre
of farmyard at
Probable flax drying shed. Early C19 (marked on 1832 tithe map) for John
Dodgson. Whitewashed rubble walls, sandstone slab roof. Small circular plan
building with steeply pitched conical roof. Plank door in quoined surround.
Casement windows in either side are a later addition. There is no recorded use
for this building, but a nearby flax mill may indicate its use for this
industry. Other suggestions are that it was a lock-up, as the farm at one time
belonged to a J.P. and that the building was constructed as a bet, to prove such
a structure could be built. It is unique in this area.
