8/229 Former Teignbridge Clay
- Cellars at Teignbridge
- II

Disused clay cellars now stores, on the disused Stover Canal. Circa 1792-18.00 for
James Templer of Stover Park q.v. Stone rubble with corrugated iron and asbestos
roofs. A very long rectangular single storey range with stone rubble raking
buttresses and 4 wide doorway openings on east side. No openings on the west canal
side. Softwood King post roof trusses. The partly roofless south end which is
detached and separated from the north end by a demolished section is not included.
North end of single storey range has flat roof in place of original pitched roof
and a demolished section at north end separates it from the 2-storey range to the
north which has a steeply pitched corrugated asbestos roof with red brick slates
over the gable-ends. 3 windows facing canal and central doorway all boarded up.
Large full-height double doorway at rear (east) and small narrow window below eaves
to right. A further adjoining range to the north has been reduced in height.
The clay cellars are associated with Stover Canal which was a private venture built
to transport local ball clay to the Staffordshire Potteries. The beginning of this
clay trade was in the 1740s.
