Abbey Farm
(Formerly Listed as:
ABBEY GREEN
Farm buildings of Dieu-la-Cres Abbey
Farm)

GV II

Stable range. c1820. Constructed from stones of the C13 abbey
of Dieu l'Acres. Coursed and squared stone with slate roofs.
EXTERIOR: single-storeyed, with 3 stable doors and inserted
double doors towards right. The building is ornamented with
fragments of worked stone, including corbel heads, taken from
the abbey.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
The building forms a group with the byre (qv) and W stable
range of Dieu-la-Cres Abbey Farm (qv), together with the
farmhouse (qv). Together with these buildings, it is an
important example of the deliberate reuse of early material,
representing a type of antiquarianism.

1862-).
