TQ 64 NW
6/64 Animal House and Stables approx
- 35m west of the Old Farmhouse,
Style Place


Animal house and stables. Mid and late C19. Ochre-coloured Flemish bond
brick, the stable includes red brick with burnt headers; peg-tile roof.

Plan: Building on a north west - south east axis is in 2 parts. The larger
barn-like animal house at the north west end faces south west and is mid C19.
The stable with granary over faces north east and is late C19, built onto the
end of the animal house.

Exterior: The animal house has a symmetrical front with a window (now boarded
over with segmental arch heads) either side of the central doorway. It is
relatively small with segmental arch head and the brick surround stands proud
of the wall face. It contains an old plank door. Animal house is gable-ended
with circular owl holes each end. Its rear wall includes a pattern of
ventilation holes. The stable is lower. On the south west a straight join
shows between the two builds. The roof maintains the same eaves and pitch
this side but it is lower and narrower. This side is blind and includes a
plain brick buttress. On the north east side the wide cartshed/garage-size
doorway is C20 and there is a first floor doorway into the granary. Stable
roof is gable-ended.

Interior: The animal house is open to a 4-bay roof of interrupted tie-beam
trusses of large scantling. The joints are pegged although many have since
been augmented with bolts and iron straps. They have clasped purlins and king
posts above the collar. The stable has plain carpentry detail; its roof was
not inspected.

These buildings are part of an unusually complete group of brewery and
ancillary buildings around the Old Farmhouse, Style Place (q.v.).
