Cider house. Probably early C19. Slatestone rubble with granite dressings. Slate roof
with ridge tiles and gable ends.

floor; there is a loft at the right end reached by an external stair at the front.
Lean-to along the rear and at the left side.
Exterior: Front has ground floor window and 4-centred arched hollow-chamfered doorway
in granite, re-used, and probably C17. External stone stair to upper doorway to
right. Attached to left a single storey lean-to with door with brick segmental head;
attached to left a screen wall about 2½ metres high and about 6 metres long, in
slatestone rubble with slate coping. This conceals a pigsty from the house. Right
side blind. At the rear there is a single storey lean-to, with window and ventilation
slit, door to right side. At the left end a single storey rubble lean-to, with pair
of double doors, one half-blocked, and corrugated asbestos roof. Small single storey
lean-to behind the screen wall, open at the side and with a granite trough inside.
Interior: Cobbled floor. The cider house retains the machinery, with a cider press to

with screw and circular wooden press. The apple crusher is at the right end, with
loft over; this has a deep circular granite basin, and granite crushing wheel turned
from a central wooden post.
