7/232 Outbuilding (Bakehouse and
Pigsty) immediately south
east and south of Welcombe


Bakehouse and adjoining pigstys. C17 bakehouse and circa early C19 pigstys.
Bakehouse: Stone rubble. The roof reduced in height to a monopit clad in corrugated
asbestos. Massive integral stack at the right hand west end with a truncated
shaft. Plan: Rectangular single-cell plan with a large fireplace and oven at
the right hand (west) end and a doorway at the centre of the north front. Probably
originally one storey. There is now another doorway in the rear south wall and
the left hand east end is open. Exterior: 1 storey. The north front has a central
doorway with a rough timber lintel and relieving arch, the door is missing. Below
the eaves, above the doorway, a row of 14 pigeon holes, some with slate ledges.
On the left hand (north east) corner where the bakehouse adjoins the barn q.v.
there is some projecting masonry, rather like a diagonal buttress. Interior:
The large open fireplace at the right hand west end has dressed stone jambs and
a chamfered timber lintel with straight cut stops. The large oven in the right
hand side of the fireplace has an arched opening and is clay lined. The oven
projects on the side of the stack inside the building. The Pigstys are in a long
narrow rectangular range to the right (west) of the bakehouse; stone rubble, with
a slate gable-ended roof with ridge tiles, one of the tiles is an early crested
ridge-tile. There are feeding hatches on the north side facing the south end
of the house. Interiors of the pigstys were not inspected. Said to be used as
an office.
