15/6 Granary approximately 20m to west of
Ferris Court Farmhouse


Formerly dovecote, later cartshed and granary. C15; altered to
cartshed with granary late C18 or early C19. Coursed rubble
limestone; corrugated roof. Rectangular north-facing cartshed
with granary loft over. Parapet gabled ends. Two cart doorways
with large timber lintel and central stone pier inserted in lower
part of north end. Plank-shuttered opening with timber lintel
immediately above main lintel; 2-light chamfered mullioned window
above that with hoodmould. Loft opening with timber-lintel at
south end. Central pointed arched doorway on east side. Stone
granary steps immediately to left with projecting nosing to
landing; loft doorway with timber lintel.
Interior: 3-bay collar and tie-beam truss roof, probably dating
from time of conversion to cartshedwith granary. This building is
probably contemporary with adjoining barn (q.v.) and is therefore
associated with the disappeared medieval manor house - the dovecote
use being reinforced by this connection.
