History

Part of mid C19 courtyard farm range probably contemporary with Brocastle house of 1860s, as shown on first edition OS map 1877.

Exterior

A long rectangular 2 storey building of coursed rubble with dressed quoins, yellow brick dressings and Welsh slate roof with decorative bargeboards; 2 slate hung roof dormers with large casement windows facing courtyard. Courtyard frontage has 3 main bays with cambered headed openings, the windows mostly with replaced glazing though original 12 pane window end right; barn range stepped forward to right has steps to high double boarded doors with overlight; further boarded doors. Gable end left has casement windows with timber lintels at first floor and cambered arch doorway below with boarded door. Drive frontage has unaltered small pane cambered arched casement windows, central 2 leaved boarded door above ground level. Many horse ties attached to masonry suggest building may have been used solely for horses.

Interior

Limewashed stone. Stable left retains boarded partitions and panelling, stable tiled floor. Middle section former feed store. To right probably former feed preparation area retains original floors and beams with close-set joists. Ceiling trusses comprise a collar between principal rafters, two rows of trenched purlins.

Reasons for Listing
