14/06/84 Three Roods with former shop and
barn attached to east and stable to
(Formerly Listed as:
Three Roads and Barns attached to
east and north)


Small house with attached shop and barn, and stable to rear;
now in two ownerships and all unoccupied at time of inspection
(July 1994). Probably earlier C18, enlarged in late C18 or
early C19. Roughly coursed mixed rubble with quoins, the house
white-washed; stone slate roof. Linear plan on east-west axis,
facing south, built below road level and at an acute angle to
it: the house at the west end apparently one rectangular unit
plus a small outshut to the rear, with a small 1-unit shop to
the right and a longer barn continued to the right.
EXTERIOR: the house, 2 low storeys and 2 windows, has a
square-headed doorway to the right (protected by a C20
corrugated sheet pitched canopy), 2 windows to the left under
a stone slate band, one window to the right, and 2 offset to
the right at 1st floor (all 4-pane sashes with margin panes)
and a large corbelled chimney at the left gable with a pitched
slate cap. Facing onto higher ground to the right, the shop is
at 1st-floor level, with a 20-pane fixed window, a
square-headed doorway to the right with an old board door, and
a tall ridge chimney at the junction with the house. The barn
has a square-headed wagon doorway at the same level, close to
the junction. Rear (to lower ground) has lean-to outshut to
house; full-height lean-to behind shop containing fine (but
damaged) C18 stable with 2 round-arched stalls with plastered
walls, a shaped wooden partition and one surviving hayrack.
INTERIOR of house not inspected, but stone flagged floors and
inserted C19 wooden partition visible.
HISTORICAL NOTE: the shop was formerly used by a tailor (who
occupied the house).
