Cow house. C17, rearranged in C20. Granite stone rubble laid to rough courses and
incorporating some large roughly-squared blocks; corrugated iron roof (formerly
Plan and description: the building was built down the hillslope facing the road to
the west. It was turned round and rerranged in the C20. This process has partly
obscured the original plan but it seems that there was a through passage a little
uphill (north) of centre. There is a hayloft above. The road front has 3 blocked
ground floor windows and a blocked doorway left of centre. All have lintels made
from single slabs of granite. The hayloft loading hatch is set above and slightly
left of the blocked doorway and its sill is made from a single piece of granite.
The roof is gable-ended and the uphill (north) end contains a blocked window. On
the rear apart from the doorway and maybe the loading hatch the windows are C20 and
Interior has plain carpentry detail including an A-frame truss roof with pegged lap-
jointed collars.
This cow house is one of an attractive group of listed buildings which make up the
hamlet of Chapple.
