TQ 54 NE
5/207 Stable about 25m west of
- Old Barn Farmhouse


Stable with loft over. Probably late C17. Framed construction, clad in
weatherboarding; tile roof, half-hipped at north end, gabletted at south end.

Plan: Built on a north-south axis. Rectangular on plan with west and east
outshuts with a longitudinal partition dividing the ground floor between 2
sets of stables, each with a door in the north end. The very tall loft has
gaps in the floor to either side of the central partition in the stable to
allow fodder to be dropped into the mangers. Outshut at south end.

Exterior: Roof gabletted at north and south ends and swept down as a catslide
to the east and west outshuts. 2 doorways and a loft door in the north end, 3
windows on east side.

Interior: Original carpentry, the outshut catslides carried on rather awkward
straight braces fixed to joists in the loft floor.

Group value with the tea room complex.
