6/94 Bakehouse approx. 150m
south-east of Winstode House


Bakehouse. C17. Cob on rubble footings; stone and cob stack; corrugated iron roof
(formerly thatch). Small gable-ended one room block terraced into hillside.
Massive ground floor fireplace in west gable end. Faces south. 2 storeys. 2
window front with door to left in heavy oak frame with chamfered surround. Ground
floor window missing. 2 small first floor windows have original unglazed oak
frames with chamfered mullions, 2 lights to left, 3 to right.
Unaltered interior. Pitched stone floor and large oak crossbeam, chamfered with
scroll stops. Enormous granite fireplace with oak lintel contains large bread oven
in left side and a curious arrangement of unknown function in the right side
comprising 2 round headed arches at floor level with rising flues and high inside
the chimney a large, blocked opening. Although the first floor structure has
collapsed to right of the stack there is no sign of an internal stair, but there is
a first floor door through the east gable. 2 bay roof with A-frame truss and
pegged, lap-jointed collar.
This small C17 bakehouse with apparently separate accommodation above is a
remarkable survival.
