SS 92 SW BAMPTON

5/3 North and east ranges of farm-
- buildings to farmyard north-west
of Benshayes Farmhouse
GV II

2 adjoining ranges of farmbuildings : a shippon and barn to the north and stables to
the east. Probably late C18 with some C19 modifications to the stable range. Stone
rubble with slate roofs, gabled at ends ; some brick dressings to ground floor stable
openings.
2 ranges at right angles to one another. The north range consists of a shippon with
loft over at the left end and a taller building at the right end with a threshing
loft (machinery formerly powered by a water wheel). The east range is also lofted,
the ground floor now converted to stables.
2 storeys. The left hand block of the north range has 4 round-headed doorways and a
blocked loft doorway. The taller adjoining block has a large first floor loft
entrance to the left, a square-headed doorway below and 2 round-headed doorways on
the ground floor to the right.
The east range has 2 ground floor doorways with flat brick arches and 5 windows,
mostly with flat brick arches. 4 first floor loft openings.
These ranges, located down the slope of the land from Benshayes Farmhouse form a good
group with the farmhouse and granary.
