Shown on the 1840 Tithe Map, the barn/stable is likely to have been built contemporaneously with the farmhouse at Penbryn Mawr in the early C19.


Of largely uncoursed rubblestone under slate roof with coped verges to original building (double threshing barn). Long rectangular plan, extended to left (lofted stable); further extension to left lower, set-back and with corrugated iron roof was possibly a cowhouse. Original building has wide full-height barn doorways to left and centre with lower doorway to right; stable door between left and centre doorways, 2 ventilation slits to right of centre doorway and small eaves window immediately to right of stable door. Extension to left has single doorway with small eaves window directly above and another window to left.


Interior not inspected at time of Survey.

Reasons for Listing

Included as a substantially unaltered early C19 cowhouse/barn associated and having group value with the adjoining contemporary farmhouse; the building is important for the evidence it provides of arable farming in this area during the early C19.
