Sir John Nicholl purchased the Merthyr Mawr Estate in 1804 and planned a new country residence away from the old manor house, Merthyr Mawr Hall (now the site of Home Farm). A new site was chosen below Chapel Hill which overlooks the Ogmore valley, and the house, with a service range and stables ranged around a yard, were constructed 1806-9. Additions were made to the service range in the 1850s, and the vehicle shed was added by 1899, replacing an earlier small building shown on the same site in 1878.


A vehicle shed roughly square in plan, with 2 lower wings, one behind the other, on its L side. Of coursed tooled stone and slate roofs. The vehicle shed and rear wing roofs are hipped, the front wing gabled. The vehicle shed has double sliding boarded doors to the front. Its R side wall is rubble stone. The front wing has a full-height boarded door to the front. The rear wing is wider, has a full-height opening to L and a stack (overgrown) to the rear. The rear wall is of snecked stone with shallow buttresses and forms part of the boundary wall (see item 11371).


Not inspected at the time of survey (May 1998).
