building immediately
South West of Farmhouse


Shippon, early C19 (on Tithe Map for Aldford, 1837). Brown brick in
English garden wall bond, with gabled roof of grey slate. Two
storeys, almost symmetrical, a model building of its period. Central
basket-arched drifthouse with cowsheds left and right; haylofts above,
each giving onto the drifthouse through two superimposed round-arched
loading openings (to facilitate loading, however full the lofts). To
each side of the drifthouse in east wall of the haylofts is a pigeon
loft with 6 tiers of 5 nesting-boxes and projecting brick
landing-platforms. Beyond the pigeon-lofts loading doors alternate
with ventilation panels of honeycomb brickwork, all in basket-arched
openings. Mid C20 metal windows under concrete lintels in lower
storey; two basket-arched doorways with boarded, ventilated doors.
Ventilators in the west wall of the haylofts are in the form of
triple-barred crosses.
