1/206 Stables and shippon approximately
- 8 metres north of Clannaborough

Stables and shippon. Probably late C17-early C18. Granite stone rubble with large
roughly-shaped quoins and some cob on the wall tops; mostly corrugated iron but the
front section of the stables is still thatched.
Plan and description: L-shaped building. The main block faces north-east and
contains the stables. A crosswing projecting forward from the left (north-west) end
houses the shippon. The front of the stables contains a doorway flanked by windows
(the left one blocking a former doorway) and, at the right end another doorway
inserted or widened in the C20 and there is a hayloft loading hatch above it. The
inner side of the shippon has a doorway with window alongside. Both roofs are
gable-end and both gables include hayloft loading hatches. The carpentry detail
throughout is plain yet sturdy and the roof includes some A-frame trusses with
pegged lap-jointed collars.
This building forms an attractive group of buildings along with the important
Clannaborough farmhouse (q.v) and the cottage (q.v) behind.
