4/199 Cellar approximately 1.5 metres
- north-west of Way Barton


Cellar. Early C18. Local stone rubble with sections of plastered cob; partly slate,
partly corrugated iron roof, formerly thatch.
Plan: 3-room plan outbuilding facing south-east towards close by Way Barton (q.v.).
The left end cell is open to the roof. The other 2 are floored over. The ceilings
and walls were plastered which suggests it was built as a service block for the main
farmhouse. Later it was probably used as a cider house and cellar and it appears
there was once an external flight of stone steps to the loft. Secondary outshot on
right (north-east) end includes a privy facing rear.
Exterior: Ground floor has 3 doorways and first floor has a loft loading hatch over a
patch of blocking from the removal of the external staircase. These all have plain
C19 plank doors. The only feature earlier is a central first floor window; an
unglazed slit window with oak frame. Roof is hipped.
Interior: The centre and right rooms have neatly-chamfered beams. These with the
evidence of ceiling plaster suggest that these rooms were of more than agricultural
or service use originally. Original roof of A-frame trusses with pegged lap-jointed
collars. The secondary privy has a C19 two-seater oak seat.
