History

Green Farm was substantially rebuilt in 1911 and this former privy relates to the early C19 farm buildings which were in the picturesque style of the Trevalyn Estate buildings at Marford, which suggests the farm may have had associations with the estate.

Exterior

Brick with some traces of render, slate roof, circular plan. Opposed doors, that to the house side with a boarded door in an arched opening, that to the yard similar without a door. On the house side there is a small opening with a pointed head and Gothick cast-iron intersecting glazing bars. The corresponding opening on the yard side is blocked.

Interior

A brick wall divides the house side from the yard side.

Reasons for Listing

Listed as a good example of an early C19 detached privy, now a relatively rare building type, designed to provide separate accommodation for the owner and his farmworkers.
