History

Pigsties and sheds probably added to Glynhir as one of the improvements following the acquisition of Glynhir by Peter DuBuisson in 1770.

Exterior

A set of six sties, the sty to the north being a little larger than the others. Local sandstone rubble masonry, with some yellow brick at eaves. Slate roof. One feeding chute survives. Taller sheds with their gables to the front terminate the row at each end.
In front of the sties is a pitched-stone apron, with an open drain at the outer edge, and a circular well, of about 3 m diameter, filled.
