162-1/11/139 (North side)
14/06/84 Barn approx. 30m south of
Scotchergill Farmhouse
(Formerly Listed as:
Scotchergill and barn to west)


Small barn or shippon. Probably mid to late C17. Slobbered
mixed random rubble with quoins, graduated stone slate roof
with wrestler-slates to the ridge. Rectangular plan (probably
2 structural bays) on north-south axis, facing west. The west
front has a roughly segmental-headed shippon doorway to the
left, with rubble voussoirs and a board door, a square window
in the centre with stone slate sill and lintel and a small
square window above that, the left half blocked. (A recent
addition at the left end, with rubble walls and corrugated
sheet roof, is not of special interest.) The south gable wall
has through-stones on 2 levels; and the rear wall has a few
very small breathers. INTERIOR: not inspected.
HISTORICAL NOTE: the wrestler slates of the roof are an
extremely rare survival; probably unique in the areas covered
by this list.
Note: this is the barn described as "west" of the farmhouse in
the former list description.
