5/71 Outbuilding adjoining
north of Hansel


Outbuilding, its north end incorporated into the dwelling accommodation of
Hansel (q.v.) Probably originally a farm building.
Probably C17, extended in C18 and with C19 and C20 alterations. Whitewashed
stone rubble and plastered cob. Grouted slate roof, gabled at right-hand
(south) end and half-hipped at left (north) end. Large rendered stack at
right-hand end with slate weathering.
Plan: Rectangular plan on a north-south axis. At the south end a small l-
storey and attic 1-room plan cottage with a gable end stack row incorporated
into the dwelling accommodation of Hansel (q.v.), the 2 buildings linked by
a C20 wing. The remainder of the building at the north end is open to the
roof and was originally farm building onto which the 1-room plan cottage was
added in the C18. In the C20 a wide vehicular entrance was inserted into
the west front of the farm building.
Exterior: 1 storey and attic at right end, high storey open to road at left
end. Asymmetrical west front, the right-hand end recessed slightly with
small C19 3-light casement on ground floor and C20 flat-roof dormer above.
To right of centre a large vehicular entrance. At the left end of the front
a ventilation slit low down in wall.
The lower (north) end has small window near ground level and a C19 2-light
casement above with margin panes. The south gable is blind but for some
pigeon holes and to the right C20 casements are at different levels and at
the left-hand end a doorway with a C20 glazed plank door above which is a
C20 flat-roof dormer.
Interior: The lower (north) end is open to the roof which has late C19 or
C20 soft-wood scissor-brace trusses. The house part of the higher south end
had a fireplace with a roughly chamfered timber lintel. The ceiling beams
are later replacements.
