History

Probably later C18 as part of Philip Yorke I's estate improvements of the 1770s. A plan of 1800 shows the complex and identifies a dog kitchen, flesh yard and kennels.

Exterior

Painted brick, slate roofs. L-shaped range of buildings closed on the W side by the wall of a waggon shed and on E side by a wall to form a yard. In the W wall is an opening leading to a room probably used to prepare food for the animals, on the N side a door and a window, an opening leading through to the limeyard, and to the right of this three doorways leading to former kennels. Running EW across the yard is a stone gutter which has several basins cut into it to form lapping pools.

Attached to the rear of the W side is a square section brick chimney which appears to relate to the former food preparation area.
