10/20 Implement store south
of Cumrew Farmhouse


Implement store, formerly house and barn. Probably late C16. Extremely thick
red sandstone rubble walls, partly of materials from the nearby medieval church,
green slate roof. 2 storeys, 2 bays. Ground floor entrance, left, has plank
door and chamfered surround; left and right of entrance are fragments of
dogtooth and zigzag decorated stone. Above right is small square window with
chamfered surround and holes for iron bars. C19 cart entrance has been cut
through wall to right; plank doors, wooden lintel and snecked stone surround.
Single storey lean to extension to rear, has late C17 mullioned windows, now
filled. Original rear wall is now internal and partly demolished when
extended. Its position close to the gates of the churchyard and the inclusion
of church materials in its construction, suggest that this building could have
been the fortified vicarage. Adjoining buildings, also belonging to Cumrew
Farm, are listed separately and included for G.V. with Cumrew Farmhouse.
