Heol-ddu was a farmhouse probably built by Philip Lloyd (who was active as a nonconformist benefactor in 1712) in 1748; his two sons succeeded to the farm. The stable block also carries on its datestone the initials P LL, with the date 1758, possibly refering to the same Phillip or possibly a son of the same initial.


Tall stable range in rubble masonry with an almost symmetrical front; corrugated steel-sheeting roof. Two slit ventilators to the loft at left, two at right. Boarded stable doors to end bays. The central cart-entrance has been narrowed. One inserted window to either side. Timber lintels to openings. Downhill (left) gable end has outside stairs up to similar doorway and uphill end has modern lean-to. Datestone centrally at high level. Small blocked stable ventilation holes in rear elevation.


Six-bay roof structure with light C19 trusses. Eight-bay loft floor structure with large main beams. The loft vents splay internally.
