History

Part of the Gwysaney Estate, the joiners shop and implement store were built in the final quarter of the C19 and are first shown on the 1899 Ordnance Survey. Gwysaney was built in 1603 but the historic character of the estate is derived principally from its redevelopment and enlargement after Philip Davies-Cooke inherited Gwysaney in 1821.

Exterior

The joiners shop is a 2-storey 3-window range of rock-faced stone with freestone dressings, and slate roof. Facing the yard on the S side are 3-light mullioned windows with hood moulds in each storey. In the L gable end is a basket arch to a wide doorway with a boarded sliding door to the R side. A boarded upper-storey door is directly above it in the upper storey. The ground level is higher at the rear, where there are two 2-light mullioned windows in the upper storey.

Against the R gable end of the joiners shop is a former implement store, the centre and L side of which was formerly open-fronted but is now infilled with corrugated iron sheets and glazed panels. The wall is rubble stone on the R side, and to the gable end.

Interior

The joiners shop has a 3-bay roof with king posts and raking struts. The implement store has a similar 6-bay roof. The trusses in the latter are carried on a long timber wall plate to the front which is supported by a single cast iron column now concealed behind the corrugated iron sheeting.
