Listing Text

The following building shall be added to the list:

TR 0261 8/327 Cartshed and adjoining shed
about 80 metres southeast of
Abbey Farmhouse.

Cartshed and integral shed of uncertain function. Probably C18.
Weatherboarded timber frame. Hipped corrugated iron roof.

Plan: 6-bay rectangular building. The 3 wider cart-shed bays at the west
end are open on the north front and west end. The 3 narrower eastern bays
are closed in and there is a doorway on the north side of the third bay from
the east.

Exterior: The north front has 3 open bays to the right with curved braces
and is weatherboarded to the left with a doorway to the left of centre. The
west end is open and the east end and rear (south) are weatherboarded and
without openings. Interior: The close-studded timber frame is complete and
has curved braces to the open bays, tension braces to the closed bays and
jowled wall-posts, but only a few of the curved braces to the tie-beams
remain. Complete common-rafter roof with straight morticed collars, clasped
purlins and a board at the ridge. The joints have carpenter's assembly marks.
The closed east end is said to have been a carpentry shop but its original
use is not known. In spite of the missing roof cladding the structure is
complete and it is an interesting example of anCl8 farm building.
