MORCHARD BISHOP SS 70 NE 5/125 Store about 20 metres south-east - of Slade Farmhouse GV II
Store made from part of a house. Late C16-early C17 house, reduced in size and height for store in late C19-early C20. Partly cob on rubble footings, partly rubble, partly volcanic ashlar; volcanic ashlar stack; corrugated iron roof. Now a single storey 1 room store facing south but was made from a room of high quality 2 storey house. Disused stack in left (west) end and disused circular newel turret projecting from south west corner. South front has original ovolo-moulded doorframe at right end which includes contemporary plank door hung on strap hinges with fleur- de-lys finials. West side of volcanic ashlar with chamfered plinth and includes a window aperture (containing early C20 frame). The other 2 sides are blind cob walls, that to east is certainly a secondary rebuild and may indicate that building formerly extended further in that direction. C20 monopitch roof. Unaltered interior. The oak lintel of stone fireplace is chamfered with step stops and the cross and 2 half beams have double-ovolo mouldings and facetted step stops. The joists are scratch-moulded. Included for group value.
