9/112 Four cattle shelter sheds with
open yards and adjoining granary
with cart shed immediately east
of Tithe Barn


Shelter sheds and granary with cart shed. c1850, possibly by
Benjamin Bucknall for William Leigh. Random rubble limestone;
clay pantile roof. Four shelter sheds stand in pairs, south east
facing with yards between. Five-bay cart shed abuts one yard on
north east side. C20 concrete block yard walls and steel-framed
covered yards are not of special interest. All blocks have
parapet gabled ends, off-centre shouldered arched doorways onto
dividing passage. Five bay arcade to westernmost sheds, 4-bay to
others, all with chamfered segmental pointed arches. Buttressed
gable ends to granary, loft doorway at south east end reached by
stone steps; quatrefoil vent above. A good example of Cl9 farm
buildings grouping well with the adjacent tithe barn (q.v.).
(Illustrated before construction of covered yards in Country Life,
