Part of the Cawdor Estate model farm at Dryslwyn-fawr, mid-C19; it was not yet built at the time of the 1839 Tithe Map.


A long low building in rubble local sandstone with limestone quoins and dressings, whitened at the front, which faces east to the yard. Slate roof with tile ridge. At both front and rear the arrangement of doors and windows has been altered. At front (the side at which livestock entered) doors and windows alternate regularly: low rectangular windows with cambered heads alternating with taller flat-headed doorways; at rear (the feeding walk side) most of the openings have been altered haphazardly but two slit windows and two typical Cawdor-estate windows remain, with flat-arch heads bearing against large impost stones.


The roof is of 16 bays, with collar beams bolted and strapped to the principals. Two purlins each side. The cattle stalls are replaced in concrete, and the feeding walk is on the west side. Original blue paving bricks for surface drainage.

Reasons for Listing

A good C19 estate cowshed, which is part of the remarkably complete model farm at Dryslwyn-fawr.
