Stables. C17, refurbished in late C19. Local stone rubble; slate roof, probably
Plan: stable block facing south-east on the opposite side of the lane to the C16
barn (q.v.). The building was much-altered in the late C19 and the arrangement of
doorways, windows and loading hatches date from that time. Nevertheless the basic
structure is still C17. It has stables with a hayloft over.
Exterior: the front has 3 stable doorways each with a window to right of it. The
right end doorway is taller than the others and has a segmental head; so too does
its window. This doorway also has a second small window to left of it. The hayloft
has an irregular disposition of 4 windows and there is a hayloft loading hatch left
of centre. All the joinery is late C19 and the windows are plain and unglazed. The
roof is gable-ended.
Interior: the carpentry detail is all C17. It is oak and neatly-finished. The
crossbeams are soffit-chamfered with runout stops. The 6-bay roof is carried on A-
frame trusses with pegged lap-jointed collars and dovetail halvings. The base of
each principal is lap-jointed onto wall posts which are set into the top ends of the
crossbeams. This arrangement suggests that the hayloft was originally open on both
sides. It may even have been built as a linhay. This is difficult to prove since
most of the masonry was replaced or refaced in the late C19.
