5/43 Milking parlour and tallet
- 20 metres west of Oxenpark
- II
Milking parlour with tallet. Circa 1910. Random rubble greensand with brick
dressing; gable end slate roof. Aisled construction; the central 'nave', with
drainage channel and milking stalls, rises above the aisles, the 'clerestory'
composed of ventilation louvres; the aisles allow access to the mangers and also
the tallet, and are also equipped with drainage channels.
Exterior: planked doors to either end of aisles, larger sliding doors to milking
parlour; oculus in each gable wall, and decorative bargeboarding.
Interior. Intact. The posts dividing milking parlour and aisles support the
trusses, the principals with short curved feet ; all pegged.
An extremely interesting building that combines a planned farmbuilding, influenced
by "model-farming" theories, with traditional building techniques. It was built by
the present owner's grandfather 'just before the First World War'; building
operations were carried out by local jobbing labourers under the direction of the
farmer himself. The result is a handsome, functional, farmbuilding.
