1/281 Stables approximately 5 metres
north of Bush House


Stables, former linhay. Late C17 or C18. Plastered cob on stone rubble footings,
weather-boarded front; thatch roof.
Plan and exterior description: the stable block faces south-east into the courtyard
behind Bush House (q.v). It was originally an open-fronted linhay except at the
right end where the cob wall returns half a bay across the front. The front was
weather-boarded in the C20 and there are stable doors each end and C20 windows
above. The centre portion has been since knocked out for a car port. The roof is
half-hipped to right and gable-ended to left where it abuts a later stable block
(q.v). Behind this is the original 5-bay front. Large roughly-finished crossbeams
rest on monolithic granite posts. On the top timber posts rise through the
tallet/hayloft and curve inwards to clasp the outer principals of A-frame trusses
with pegged lap-jointed collars.
This stable (former linhay) and the outer thatched farmbuildings associated with
Bush House (q.v) form an attractive group in the village.
