27/105 Farmbuildings situated

Farmbuildings (hay-storage barn, byre, stabling and tack-room, pig sties and
ashhouse) built around small yard. Probably C1858. Coursed rubble masonry with
Welsh slate gable-end roofs. One and two storeys. This group forms part of a
larger farmstead of which the roadside range and buildings converted to use as
the exhibition centre and shop are not listed. S range; (from E) ash house with
planked door and small opening to deposit ash; tack room with planked door and
casement window; cart shed with double planked doors with strap hinge under flat
wooden lintel. W range: storage room approached from S by external stone stairs
and 'stable-type' door over stable proper, entered from S by large stone
elliptically headed arched doorway. To the N of this, the byre with 2 elliptical
stone arched entrances facing the yard. N range: barn, with two openings facing
yard, elliptical headed archways, the sills set high, and used for hay storage.
Large vehicular entrance to E. E range (closing the yard): 2 pig sties, planked
doors with strap hinges, and blocked swill holes. Roofs: generally sawn timber,
but to the byre, a much rougher side-purlin roof.
