5/56 Pair of outbuildings 4 metres east
of Hemyock Castle Gatehouse
A pair of outbuildings; their precise function is not known, but it was probably
for storage. Circa 1800. Random rubble flint; gable-end corrugated iron roof. 2
single-celled, 2 storeyed structures, running parallel to each other and flanking
the approach from the parish church to the castle. Each west elevation with pointed
stone doorway arch (one with a planked and studded door), and pointed window to
ground floor (one blocked, the other with central mullion and saddle bars), and loft
access above, also pointed. Collar rafter trusses, morticed and pegged at apex.
These buildings contribute to an attractive group comprising the castle house and
gatehouse, and the parish church. They were probably built during the occupation
of General Simcoe, the first Governor General of Canada.
