Planned group of farm buildings. Mid-late C19. Slatestone rubble walls with granite
quoins, brick, jambs and cambered brick arches. Hipped Delabole dry slate roofs.
Single depth ranges surrounding rectangular courtyard with continuous outshut to
east. Ground slopes down to east and south. Wide central entrance to north flanked
by single storey lodge-like buildings originally for pigs or calves. Opposite to
south is single storey range with alternate doors and window openings probably for
loose boxes. 2 storey shippon range to east with storage over. West shippon range,
architecturally the most impressive is built into bank to rear. Central part is
taller with 3 wide openings to ground floor. Wide central doorway to first floor
grain store has segmental arch and canopy formed by roof extension supported on
shaped wooden corbels and brackets (similar doorway opposite to rear) small first
floor windows are principally for ventilation. Half-hipped roof has central bellcote
with pyramidal roof surmounted by weather vane. Throughout the group are many
original wooden window frames both single light and 2-light windows with mullions,
some with original shutters and vertical iron bars. To ground floor left of west
range is 16-pane 2-light casement.
Interiors of all buildings have their original king post roof structures and floors.
Cobbled floors to north range, most of west range and northern end of east range.
Other ground floors now concreted over for cow stalls. Many original fittings
survive including slate pen partitions to building east of entrance, slate feeders to
part of west range and some original stall partitions. An interesting technical
innovation is brick vaulted surface water or slurry collection tank under floor of
building to south-east corner connected to drain from lowest part of yard. An
unusually intact farm group.
