II GV

Stable. Early C19. For the Dashwood Estate. Flint with red brick quoins,
surrounds, stepped dentilled eaves, and east gable. Plain tile roof, half-hipped at
west end. One storey with loft. 4 bays. Yard (south) elevation has wide stable
door to bay 4 with drain on right, vent on left, and flanking windows; similar door
at left end with window on right. Windows are small-paned. All openings have
segmental brick arches. Rear: central loft door rising through eaves under gablet;
added lean-to on right not of special interest. Right return: loft opening with
board door. Interior: left end is board-lined and has 2 stalls with wooden trough
and manger. The rest has partitions to divide area into stalling for 2, 6, 6 and
2 cows with wooden troughs and mangers and gap in floorboards above to enable
filling of mangers from above. Wooden pegs; wooden corn shoot from loft. Ladder up
to loft which has roof trusses dividing it into 7 bays; principal rafter trusses
with curved braces up to collars; clasped purlins; plank ridge on yokes. The stable
is an important element of this farmyard group and retains its original interior
fillings. It is probably similar in date to the farmhouse (qv) which is dated 1819.
