28.1.86 Buildings to north
of Milkhope Farmhouse
Byres, shelter sheds, barns and storerooms, with covered yard. 1865 dated on
panel in pedimented central gable of south block. Snecked tooled sandstone
with tooled-and-margined flush lintels and cills and chamfered alternate-block
jambs; stone eaves corbels. Welsh slate roofs with stone copings. Two adjoining
T-shaped north ranges, with wings projecting to south, are linked by tall, ramped
rear walls to flanking shelter sheds. The western range has a covered yard on
its west side; the south wing of the eastern range is flanked by parallel wings,
that to east longer, with louvred, raised roof ridges. To south a shallow T-
shaped range, whose wing runs northward, forms the centre of the composition.
This and the shelter sheds are single-storey; the central blocks 2-storey. In
south block central segmental-arched rebated cart entrance in projecting panel.
Similar entrances, without projections, in gable end walls and in south ends of
shelter sheds. The sheds have full-height spine walls, except in southern bays,
and 7-bay segmental arcades at either side. The wings projecting from the
centre blocks have square-headed doors, and small-paned upper windows, some of
which are replaced. Rear (north) elevation: 2 main blocks, the right slightly
lower. Left block 5 bays, with central sliding wagon doors and replaced
casements in original openings; blocked loading door at right. Right block 9
closely-set windows above and 3 below, all in original openings; and a boarded
door. Flanking walls, with blocked segmental cart arches, lead to blank north
ends of shelter sheds.
No internal fittings. Buildings being altered to workshops at time of survey.
Many of the segmental-arched openings will be glazed, partly-filled and given
different doors and windows. 4 matching segmental arches are being inserted to
flank the central door; the basic design of the group is expected to remain
Included as an unusually large example of a planned C19 cattle farm.
