- Cellar and wood sheds
approximately 1.5 metres north-
west of Holcombe Court
Cellar and woodsheds. Circa 1859 - 63; they were built as part of the Reverend
William Rayer's renovation of the main house. Snecked grey-coloured local limestone
with some ashlar; slate roof with some original crested roof tiles.
Plan: L-shaped building terraced into the hillslope on 2 sides. It contains 3
rooms, one in the angle of the 2 wings and one each side. None has fireplaces.
The entrance front faces south-east onto the back of Holcombe Court (q.v). The cold
store or cellar is in the right room here. The other 2 rooms are wood sheds; and
their south-west front is the more architectural since it overlooks the grounds and
serpentine lake that side of the house. An arch (facing south-west) connects these
service rooms to the main house. Holcombe Court is terraced into a hillslope and
therefore the narrow service courtyard to rear (north-west) is sunken into the
rising ground occupied by the kitchen garden (q.v) and this cellar and woodshed
block occupies the south-west end of the courtyard backing onto the terrace. The
rooms are single storey with lofts over.
Exterior: the south-west side has a 2:1 window front of 2-centred arch windows
containing casements, now without glazing bars. The 1-window section to right is
broken forward from the rest; it is the gable-end of the south-east facing block.
There is a lancet in the gable and coping to the gable. The front wall and the
weathered coping continue rightwards, the coping rising as a gable over a tall
segmental-pointed arch with a double chamfered arch ring. The house (south-east)
front is similar.
Interior: has plain carpentry detail.
This cellar add woodsheds form a group with Holcombe Court (q.v), its ancillary
buildings (most of which are listed), the Church of All Saints (q.v) and the houses
at the top end of Holcombe Rogus.
