Cowhouse. Probably late C17, reusing several earlier timbers. Roughly
coursed limestone rubble with weatherboarding below eaves on south side; steep-
pitched corrugated iron roof. 2 levels; 4 doorways to ground floor and eaves
hatch to centre on south. Interior. Roof in 4 bays. South side has short
wall posts rising from high stone plinth supporting tie beams of 2 centre
trusses, left of which has curved principal rafters and right of which has
curved principal rafter to rear and reused C15 cruck blade to front. This
is chamfered with mortices and peg-holes for arch-bracing, collars and yoke
to apex. Probably part of a jointed or upper cruck as has tenon visible
to bottom, obviously not intended to fit existing joint with tie beam;slots
for double through-purlins and heavy smoke blackening. Curved principals
also have mortices for former collars, slots for double through-purlins and
traces of smoke blackening. Late C20 truss to left gable end and rubble-
stone to right with triangular air vents. The cruck blade and the curved
principals may come from an earlier house on the site of Stowe Farmhouse (not
included in this list).
