Listing Text

SS 70 NE
5/125 Store about 20 metres south-east
- of Slade Farmhouse

Store made from part of a house. Late C16-early C17 house, reduced in size and
height for store in late C19-early C20. Partly cob on rubble footings, partly
rubble, partly volcanic ashlar; volcanic ashlar stack; corrugated iron roof. Now a
single storey 1 room store facing south but was made from a room of high quality 2
storey house. Disused stack in left (west) end and disused circular newel turret
projecting from south west corner. South front has original ovolo-moulded doorframe
at right end which includes contemporary plank door hung on strap hinges with fleur-
de-lys finials. West side of volcanic ashlar with chamfered plinth and includes a
window aperture (containing early C20 frame). The other 2 sides are blind cob
walls, that to east is certainly a secondary rebuild and may indicate that building
formerly extended further in that direction. C20 monopitch roof. Unaltered
interior. The oak lintel of stone fireplace is chamfered with step stops and the
cross and 2 half beams have double-ovolo mouldings and facetted step stops. The
joists are scratch-moulded. Included for group value.
