Badsell Barns, No 2
Former stables approximately 60 metres south of Badsell Manor Farmhouse,

(Formerly listed as Stables approximately 60 metres south of Badsell Manor Farmhouse, Badsell Road)

Former stable block, converted to a house. Late C16/early C17, converted circa 1986. Front is late C16/early C17 brick, English bond red brick with a diaper pattern of burnt headers; east end rebuilt in C20 brick; rest is timber-framed and clad with weatherboards; peg-tile roof.

Plan: the former stable block faces north north east, north back onto the road. Internal arrangement is the result of its conversion to a house. It has always been two storeys, formerly with a hay loft over the stalls.

Exterior: irregular two-window front of C20 casements without glazing bars. The two ground floor front doorways and two former hayloft loading hatch doorways are probably in original positions and now contain C20 plank doors, mostly part-glazed. The extreme right end of the front wall is weatherboarded. The rest is brick. The left half was rebuilt circa 1986 and faced up with original bricks in the same pattern as the original work surviving to right. There is a chamfered plinth. The roof is gable-ended.
Interior: not inspected. There is, according to several reports, a curious underground chamber built of brick with a barrel-vaulted roof.
