Field cowhouse, probably late C17 (bearing graffito of 1728). Originally intended to house a small number of cows or cattle, detached from the main buildings of the farmstead.


Vernacular field cowhouse, sited against the slope of a hill. Of boulder rubble construction on pronounced boulder and rock foundations; cement grouted slate roof with crudely-kneelered rubble gable parapets. Entrance to the front gable with crude projecting lintel supported on stone corbels; deeply-recessed boarded stable door. Open loadingdoor to the rear gable; the roof has a discreet skylight to the R pitch. Adjoining to the eastern long side are two C19 rubble lean-tos, continuously-roofed with corrugated iron; modern stable door to the front and open to the rear.


Three-bay interior with original crude pegged trusses of collar and tie-beam type; the original purlins and rafters also survive. Slate-flagged floor with central slate gully and slate partitions dividing the stalls.

Various graffiti in the doorway jambs, including one dated 1728 with the initials 'Rg '(?).
