High Cayton
1/130 Stables, cart-sheds and
byres, now outbuilding
15.3.66 approximately 20 metres
north of the eastern
(formerly listed with
Cayton Hall)


Stables, cart-sheds and byres, now outbuildings. Late Cl7 and earlier, with
later alterations. Coursed squared pink-grey gritstone, former stables
enclosing remains of timber frame, pantile roof with eaves courses of stone
slates. A row of 3 buildings: a 2-storey, 3-bay former stable, 2-bay cart-
shed and approximately 5-bay byre range. Stables: board doors to right of
bays 1 and 2; the wide left-hand triangular-headed doorway has chamfered
quoined jambs, the lintel possibly raised. The right-hand doorway is
narrower, having a deeper chamfer and a 4-centred arched head.
Fenestration: a small chamfered window to bay I, a 4-pane side-sliding sash
centre; a 2-pane window in recessed-chamfered surround to right. A small
square boarded opening under eaves, centre; a larger inserted pitching door
to right. Left return: concrete steps rise to a doorway with plain
surround. Interior: the rear wall, first floor, encases 2 principal posts
and remains of the wall plate of timber-framed structure. The 3 roof
trusses are set into the wall plate but are not linked to the posts. The
trusses are of large timbers with a collar halved and dovetailed into them,
linked by 2 tiers of through purlins and a ridge piece. They appear to be
reused - probably from the timber-framed building on the site. Cart-shed:
an open-sided shelter attached to the right gable wall of the stable;
central pier. Byre range: board double doors far left, paired byre doors
centre with square opening to right; board door far right. Right return:
blocked doorway with chamfered quoined-jambs and shallow triangular head.
The stable contains the oldest remains of a building on the site of the
deserted village of High Cayton.
