Originally a shelter or cartshed incorporating an earlier wall, later subdivided and
with bull pen added. Circa early C19. Granite rubble, coursed with snecks following
the slope of the land to the rear wall, roughly-hewn granite monoliths along the
front (east) with later granite rubble with granite dressings, partial infilling
between. Hipped scantle slate roof.
Long rectangular plan incorporating earlier rear wall, originally with open front
carried on granite monolith posts. Cross walls behind some of the posts. High
walled pen for bull added left of middle in front and adjoining larger pen at the top
end of the yard which also relates to item 7/45.
1 of a group of farm buildings relating to Godolphin House qv.
The older coursed west wall against which this shelter was built, continues
northwards to include Cow Yard gate and joins onto the large yard (qv) to the rear
(south) of Godolphin House. Running obliquely through the courtyard gate (and
originally through the gateway to the north) there is an ancient slightly raised
causeway of setts with granite kerb stones. It used to lead to the back gate of
Godolphin House on axis with the screens passage. Running the length of the back
wall of the shelter and on its west side a raised cobbled pavement terminating at a
field gate to the south.
