13/9 Piggeries at Towers Farm
Arnewood 150m north-west
of Arnewood Court
Model pig farm. Circa 1880 for ATT Peterson. Mass concrete built in lifts,
including vaulted roofs which must have been built in-situ on formwork. Situated
behind Downlands Cottage, off Barrows Lane, a planned farm complex consisting of 3
rows of buildings set parallel on a north-west/south-east axis. Buildings of
different length but same form: single storey, 2 bays wide with moulded cornice
that runs along sides and at ends rises up along vault of roof. Various openings for
windows and doors and some chimneys (probably rendered brick). Derelict and in a poor
state of repair, one range suffered a sudden collapse in the early 1980s. These
buildings are important both as an example of early concrete construction, and as
an example of the late C19 planned pig farm.
