8/13 Bee Boles in walled Court 20m
- south of Ash Barton


Bee-boles, probably C18, in a walled courtyard. The Courtyard now includes a lean-
to animal shelter in front of the bee-boles, consisting of C20 corrugated roof on
timber supports. Walls of rubble with cob in the upper parts and pantiled capping.
The rubble on south facing wall is built up higher than the remaining walls to
accommodate bee-boles which are partially obscured by inserted manger. Central door
opening with arrangement of 2 tiers of 10 to each side with plastered niches, slate
bases and shouldered heads. 3 pairs of bee-boles have been infilled with rubble.
The bee boles are sited to south of enclosed house garden and possibly form part of
a grander garden design now lost.
