SS 61 SE
5/175 The Gamekeeper's Cottage and
adjoining Cartshed
south east of Colleton Manor
- II

Cottage and integral cartshed formed from part of the earlier stables qv
adjoining. Circa late C19 incorporating part of circa C18 extension of C17
stables. Local sedimentary stone rubble, the earlier right hand (west) end is
dressed and coursed stone. Slate roof with granite coped gable ends with ball
and cap finials. Brick axial stack at centre.
Plan: 2-room plan with central axial stack, the right hand (west) room probably
formed out of the extension to the C17 stables q.v. adjoining right (west),
since it has what appears to be a blocked cart-entrance with a large timber
lintel in the front wall which is built of dressed masonry unlike the rest of
the building which is stone rubble. There is a C19 integral cartshed with a
gable end entrance at the left (east) end and a later C19 wing at the back of
the left hand end.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetical 3-window range. Late C19 3-light casements
with glazing bars. Late C19 plank door to left with small rectangular fanlight
and a wider blocked doorway immediately to its right. On the right at the front
a lean-to outshut that conceals a large timber lintel, probably to a former cart
entrance. The long range continues as a cart-shed at the left end with a blind
front (north) wall and wide segmental brick arch cart-entrance on the gable end
wall.
Interior: only briefly observed and no exposed features were evident. The roof
has straight principal rafters resting on the wall tops.
