Outbuilding Immediately
South East of Painsford


A building associated with Painsford Manor (qv), now used as a farm building.
C17. Dressed slate rubble. Asbestos slate hipped roof.
Plan: Probably originally a 2-room plan, although the partition between the
2 rooms is C20. The right hand ground floor room to the south is heated from
a gear lateral stack with an oven. The left hand ground floor room to the
north is unheated and has a doorway at the back giving direct entry. The
first floor is one large room now open to the roof, with a lateral fireplace
at the front of the left hand end. The fireplace in the rear lateral stack
at the other end appears to be a later alteration.
The original purpose of the building is uncertain but it may be on or near the
site of the putative south east wing of Painsford Manor (qv).
Exterior: 2 storeys. Symmetrical 3-window west front. All the openings have
finely dressed slate segmented arches. They are all windows, their frames
missing, except for the ground floor left which is now a doorway.
The rear elevation has a projecting lateral stack towards the left hand end
either an oven in the angle, and a finely dressed slate chamfered segmental
arch doorway to the right of centre. There are various later openings in the
rear wall including a wide doorway to the right.
Interior: The first floor fireplace in the front wall of the left end has
finely dressed chamfered slate jambs with pyramid stops and a large slate
lintel with a hollow-chamfered soffit. The ground floor fireplace in the rear
lateral stack to the right is blocked and the fireplace above has a red brick
flat arch. Roof: collars are pegged to the face of straight principals.
