6/61 Outbuilding approx 40m south
west of the Old Farmhouse,
Outbuilding, probably an oasthouse originally. Probably late C18/early C19.
Flemish bond brick including burnt headers; slate roof.
Plan: 2-cell building facing north east. The left (south eastern) cell is
square in plan, smaller than the right cell which includes opposing front and
back full height doorways next to the left cell. Both are 2 storeys and to
rear the roof is carried down over a secondary outshot enclosed with brick
wall and with a cart entrance in the right (south west) end. This outshot was
probably a loading bay.
Exterior: The front contains only the wide full height doorway containing
plain plank doors on each level. Each cell has its own roof, a pyramid roof
over the left cell and a roof hipped both ends over the right cell. In the
right end wall a doorway with segmental arch head and first floor window
containing a late C19/early C20 window with glazing bars.
Interior: Plain carpentry detail. Interesting roof structure over the larger
right cell; 4 bays of scissor-braced trusses including raking struts from the
scissor-blades to the purlins. Contemporary pyramid roof construction over
the left cell. Both roofs include square holes through the apex of the roof
which are now plastered over internally and slated externally. However these
are thought to be former oast chimneys.
This former oasthouse is part of an unusually complete group of C19 brewery
and ancilliary buildings around the Old Farmhouse, Style Place (q.v.).
