ST 00 SW
2/8 Outhouse approximately 1.5 metres
- south of Broad Oak Farmhouse

Outhouse. C17, reroofed in the C19. Plastered cob on stone rubble footings with
some brick patching; slate roof.
Plan: the outhouse is on a north-south axis and stands close to the back of the
farmhouse. It has a 2-room plan with a stair rising between them. The northern
room (closest to the farmhouse is thought to have been some sort of cellar or cider
store but the larger southern rooms was probably a stable or something similar.
There is a hayloft or bunkhouse above. 2 storeys.
Exterior: there are doorways each end and there is a hayloft loading hatch over the
southern (stable) doorway. The east side has a doorway a little right of centre to
the staircase. On the west side are 2 first floor windows, both are C17, oak-framed
with chamfered mullions and are unglazed. The roof is gable-ended.
Interior: has plain carpentry detail. The ground floor crossbeams are roughly
chamfered and probably C17 in date but the roof was replaced in the C19 with low
pitch A-frame trusses with plate yokes.
The function of this outhouse is unclear but it is interesting to speculate on its
use. Its proximity to the service end of the house suggests that it was used as
some kind of cellar or store. However, if the first floor windows are in situ (that
is to say they were not reset here in the C19) then this suggests some domestic
function for the first floor. Even so it is unheated. Maybe it was a bunk house
for itinerant workers.
