2/71 Goose house approx. 15 metres south- - west of Blands Farmhouse

GV II

Goose house, with pigeon loft above, early C19th. Sandstone rubble. A conical corbelled hut of dry stone walling surmounted by a cap of dressed sandstone, square on plan at the base and with a faceted dome on top. This dressed stone was probably a waste piece from the sandstone quarry which adjoined. The base of the building is now overgrown and the entrance not visible. Probably built by Arthur Burrow the second, known as 'Perpetual Arthur' (1759-1827). In a letter dated December 1935 Baldwin Bent of Wray House records a meeting with Arthur Burrow's grandson who told him the purpose of the building.
