The dog kennel is built within, comprising a brick chamber with a raised brick floor. 80cm x 52 cm internally, with a stone slab perforated with a large oval hole set flush with the wall and giving access directly on to the farmyard. The wall is stone coped, worn smooth.
Raised brick floor to the kennel.
Included as an interesting and carefully worked out combination of two essential elements of an early C19 farm, part of a group with the house and associated farmbuildings.
