5/204 Outbuilding about 20 metres
- north-east of Sherwell Farmhouse
Outbuilding, formerly a longhouse. Possibly medieval, extended on the north-west in
C18 or C19, and on south-east in C20; lean-to at rear C19, extended in C20.
Granite rubble. Roof, hipped at north-west end, covered with corrugated iron. Plan
consists of a single room to right (with no sign of a fireplace); shippon to left
with opposing front and back doors next to the former house-part. 1 storey with
loft. Front door has porch consisting of 2 large slabs of granite with a third slab
for a roof; the left side-piece stands on a rough boulder and both side-pieces have
smaller stones at the top, presumably designed to provide a level base for the roof.
To right of this porch is another door with a wood lintel, probably a later
insertion, and to right of that is an old slit window. To the left of the porch are
2 small windows, larger than the slit. The extension to left has a pair of large
double doors. To left of these, just below the eaves, are 6 pigeon holes.
Interior: Loft floor-beams and roof are C20. The shippon has a drain down the
centre, roughly made and of uncertain age.
