Barn and folly. Mid C18. Coursed and squared stone in shallow beds, dressed
limestone flush quoins and other detail, corrugated asbestos cement. A lofty
front wall to road, concealing barn on two levels under a lean-to roof behind. To
road is screen wall to crenellated top over lunette and central quatrefoil at
upper level over two filled door openings beneath fanlights and central pair
diagonal plank door under fanlight. All openings with flat pilaster surrounds or
platbands; impost blocks, to doorways. Return, left with circular pitching eye;
right return the same, with plank door in platband surround. Back has opening
approached by flight of concrete steps to barn in 7 narrow bays with an arch-
braced lean-to structure to cruck-like principals; bolted members. Sometimes
known as the 'hate wall', the folly is reputed to have been built to block out
light from Greenhouse Court (q.v) which lies on the opposite side of the road.
There was considerable ivy growth to the right-hand end of the building at the
time of survey (February 1986).
