Listing Text

ST 20 NW
7/120 Shippon and Stables adjoining west
- of Underdown Farmhouse
Shippon and stables. Mid - late C19. Exposed local stone and flint rubble; slate
Plan: this range of farmbuildings containing mainly a shippon and stables projects
right angles in front of the south end of Underdown Farmhouse (q.v). It is in 3
sections each on a slightly different axis describing a kind of angular arc but
basically facing north. The left-hand section (nearest the house) is some kind of
store (maybe it was a cider house). The centre section is the shippon with hayloft
over and it contains a through-passage and the right (west) section is the stable
with hayloft over.
Exterior: the left section includes 2 square-headed doorways and the windows here
are glazed. The shippon has an arcade of 4 segmental-headed doorways, the left arch
is more pronounced and almost pointed. There are 2 hayloft loading hatches above.
The stable section contains a stable door with window to right, hayloft loading
hatch above and a doorway to a staircase to left. The roof is hipped to right.
Interior: has plain carpentry detail and the roof is carried on A-frame trusses
with spiked lap-jointed collars and plate yokes.
This range of traditional farmbuildings form a group with the attractive Underdown
Farmhouse (q.v).
