to each side of the stack and extending a short distance along the front and

inscribed zigzags in panels, is enclosed by the rear extension. Heavy studding,
primary straight bracing, unjowled posts, face-halved and bladed scarfs in both

formed with boards, with entrance to front. Later brick privy to rear, of no
architectural or historic interest. The rear stable has a good brick floor.
