SAWLEY HALL ROAD
SE 26 NE (south side, off)
5/175 Garden building and
approximately 200 metres
west of Sawley Hall
Garden building and enclosure wall. Probably early-mid C19. Coursed
squared gritstone, grey slate roof to garden building. Garden building:
circular, approximately 5 metres in diameter, walls 2 metres high; entrance
on south side flanked by narrow buttresses, jambs and lintel of edge-tooled
single blocks, the lintel curved to follow the curvature of the walls.
Small aperture in wall opposite. Oversailing eaves, conical roof.
Interior: earth floor; 4 principal rafters with halved collars support
chamfered king post. Circular enclosure wall: approximately 2 metres high,
80 metres diameter; of carefully tooled and coursed stone on inner face, but
of coursed rubble on outer face. Wide gateway on north side, narrower
pedestrian gate on south. Both have shallow triangular-arched lintels,
chamfered on both sides, the north entrance lintel of 2 pieces. Original
purpose uncertain, but local tradition claims that the garden building was a
cockpit. Cock-fighting was made illegal in England in 1849, which might
explain the secluded nature of the building, but cockpits are generally
larger and with a deeper well.
