3/123 Shippon adjoining piggery at
- approx. 10m north west of
Carminowe Farmhouse

Shippon. Circa 1860. Shale rubble with dressed granite quoins, jambstones and
lintels and incorporating some reused dressed medieval and C17 stonework from the
former Carminowe Manor complex. Grouted scantle slate roof, adjoining wall of barn
left and with gable end right.
Rectangular plan with 3 entrances to front communicating with barn, left and with
entrance in right hand gable and for access from farmhouse without entering farmyard.
Presumably mangers at rear and drain along front (south) behind standings.
Single storey. South front with central doorway, doorway towards either end and slit
ventilators midway between. Original ledged doors right and left. Central doorway
partly blocked and fitted with reused 7 pane window. The ventilation slits are
trefoil-headed (reused).
At the right-hand (east) gable end is doorway left and window right. The reused wide
nearly round headed chamfered and diagonal stopped dressed stone doorway is probably
C17, fitted with original circa 1860 V-jointed ledged door with ornate iron handle
and internal hinges. The reused straight chamfered 2 light mullioned window with
intermediate bars is also probably C17 but trefoil headed ventilation slit over is
probably earlier, also reused. Rear not inspected but presumably has some window
Carminowe was an important manor from the C17.
Interior not inspected.
Part of a planned group of farm buildings and virtually complete as built and with
the enhanced interest of the reused fragments.
