Full Description

A historic buildings assessment was carried out for a 19th C cartlodge and granary prior to their conversion. The granary is brick and flint structure, which appears to have been primarily built for use as a grainstore. Although the original grain bins survive on the first floor, this structure has been much altered through time. The timber-framed and weatherboarded cart shed appears to have also been used as a cow house. These buildings would have once formed part of a wider group of farm buildings at this site, of which only a 17th C barn survives. Archaeological monitoring was carried out as the footing trenches were dug during the conversion, however no archaeological finds or features were located (S1).
