- II

Wheelwright's shop. Circa mid C19, extended in C20. Stone rubble walls. Gable
ended corrugated iron roof.
Plan: The original building is rectangular on plan consisting of one large workshop.
The water wheel which drives the machinery is detached from the building and
adjoined the right-hand wall at the rear. In the late C19 the building began to be
extended by a blacksmith's'shop built on along the left-hand wall and in the C20 a
large addition was made at the right-hand side constructed of corrugated sheeting.
Exterior: 2 storeys. The entrance is in the gable end which has a wide opening on
both ground and 1st floors and a small window below the gable. Lean-to addition of
former blacksmith's shop against left-hand wall with doorway in its gable end.
Extensive C20 corrugated addition to right. The overshot water wheel at the rear is
served by wooden launders but is now enclosed.
Interior: The gearing and shafts driven by the wheel still survive. in situ and are
functional.
This is an unusual example of a purpose built wheelwright's shop still performing
its original function and with its original source of power still operative.
