Smithy with attached workshop and cart sheds. Dated 1871. Built for the Holkham Estate. Flint with brick lacing, pantile roof covering with single chimney stack to smithy.
PLAN: L-shaped range with smithy to west end of south facing range, and workshop with attached cart sheds extending northwards and facing east. Smithy with small-paned cast-iron window and planked, split door. Adjacent workshop with single cast-iron window.
6-bay cart shed and workshop with double doorway. Interior retains smithy hearth, bellows and workbench with lifting gear.
HISTORY: Waterden Farm was re-modelled in the 1870's, when increased mechanisation meant that farm machinery needed to be repaired and housed under cover. This is a rare example of a smithy retaining its fittings.
