2/147 Building 3 metres west of
- Brown's Farmhouse

- II

Detached building, now a store, but formerly a serge-making workshop. C18.
Roughcast cob on stone footings. Some brick patching and hipped and gabled-end
thatched roof. End window with C18 surround and one stanchion above a renewed
doorway, the door planked with an old lock, with the corners decorated with
trefoils. Later, probably C19, side entrance. A Sun Life Assurance policy
inventory of 1760 notes that the 'cellar' adjacent to Samuel Dagworthy's dwelling
at Woodbury Salterton (i.e. Brown's Farmhouse) was used for serge making. The
house is occupied (1985) by the same family who still refer to this building on
'the cellar'
