1/168 Pig house approximately 2 metres
north of Powlesland Farmhouse
Pighouse, former bakehouse/cottage. Late C17 but apparently earlier origins.
Earliest part is granite stone-rubble, rest is cob on stone rubble footings; disused
cob stack; corrugated iron roof, formerly thatch.
Plan: 2-room plan building facing south-east. The right room is the earlier part.
In the late C17 a second room added with gable-end stack, the wall over the earlier
part raised and the whole building new-roofed. Formerly a bakehouse/cottage it has
since been converted to agricultural use with the first floor now used as a hayloft.
Exterior: the difference between the cob and stone rubble builds shows clearly.
Each side of the central straight join is a doorway each flanked by a C20 window.
The left doorway is an oak C15 2-centred arch with chamfered surround. Maybe this
has been reset here from the train farmhouse. Hayloft loading hatch at right end.
Roof is gable-ended.
Interior has plain carpentry detail. The large fireplace has a plain oak lintel,
the crossbeams have unstopped soffit chamfers and roof of originally uncollared
straight principal trusses.
