18/28 Fleecing and washing
shop/drying shed at
23.7.86 Castlethorpe Tannery
approximately 100 metres
south of Manor House


Fleecing and washing shop with drying shed over. Probably mid C19. Brick
with pantile roof. Rectangular on plan, approximately 14 metres by
3 metres; stands over a stream at the south side of former tannery, with
water entering building at east end. North side: low 2 storeys, 8 first-
floor openings. Doorway to left (door missing) and 2 openings to right
beneath timber lintels; series of wide first-floor openings running full
length of building. Similar first-floor openings to south side. West
gable-end: 3 ground-floor openings beneath timber lintels, doorway to first
floor. East gable-end: round arch to stream culvert, 2 ground-floor
openings beneath timber lintels, 2 wide first-floor openings with timber
lintels supporting a third similar opening in the gable above. Interior:
ground floor contains a tank at the east end, flooded by the stream,
approximately 5 metres long and 2 metres wide, and divided laterally by
timbers into 13 compartments, with a narrow plank platform and a flagged and
brick-paved floor on the north side. A culvert carries the stream under the
remainder of the building. At the east end is a pit with a large iron
washing drum set in a wooden tank. First-floor openings formerly had
Stevenson screens for ventilation. The earliest structures in the tannery,
ruinous at time of resurvey, appear to be C18 - early C19. The tannery
ceased operating earlier this century.
