4/40 Abbey House and ruins of
monastic barn


Ruins of barn, partly converted into house. C14, with C19 and C20
alterations. Rubble sandstone, stone slate roof. Riverside (west)
elevation: 2 storeys, 2:6 internal bays. To left, Abbey House with C20
openings. Barn: a small lancet window to each ground-floor bay; on first
floor, in second and fifth bays a pitching doorway with stone platforms
supported on corbels; 2 lancet windows with labels. No roof at time of
resurvey. The continuation of the west elevation to the right appears to be
medieval, but has no architectural features. East elevation: barn has, to
right, wide opening with segmental arch reconstructed from chamfered stones,
with keystone inscribed "WSS 73", and on the first floor a pitching doorway
and the chamfered surround of a 2-light mullion window. To right, Abbey
House: central doorway with dogtooth decoration on jambs and shouldered
head; on either side a 4-pane window with shouldered head, that to right
below an ogee arch with carving. External stack to right end. To left, C19
farm buildings built into and onto the southern continuation of the barn are
not of special interest. Interior: ground-floor openings on west side of
barn have deeply-splayed reveals. End walls have steeply-pitched gables.
The medieval barn belonged to the Premonstratensian Abbey of St Agatha (qv).
