HOLCOMBE ROGUS HOLCOMBE ROGUS ST 01 NE 5/124 - Cellar and wood sheds approximately 1.5 metres north- west of Holcombe Court GV II Cellar and woodsheds. Circa 1859 - 63; they were built as part of the Reverend William Rayer's renovation of the main house. Snecked grey-coloured local limestone with some ashlar; slate roof with some original crested roof tiles. Plan: L-shaped building terraced into the hillslope on 2 sides. It contains 3 rooms, one in the angle of the 2 wings and one each side. None has fireplaces. The entrance front faces south-east onto the back of Holcombe Court (q.v). The cold store or cellar is in the right room here. The other 2 rooms are wood sheds; and their south-west front is the more architectural since it overlooks the grounds and serpentine lake that side of the house. An arch (facing south-west) connects these service rooms to the main house. Holcombe Court is terraced into a hillslope and therefore the narrow service courtyard to rear (north-west) is sunken into the rising ground occupied by the kitchen garden (q.v) and this cellar and woodshed block occupies the south-west end of the courtyard backing onto the terrace. The rooms are single storey with lofts over. Exterior: the south-west side has a 2:1 window front of 2-centred arch windows containing casements, now without glazing bars. The 1-window section to right is broken forward from the rest; it is the gable-end of the south-east facing block. There is a lancet in the gable and coping to the gable. The front wall and the weathered coping continue rightwards, the coping rising as a gable over a tall segmental-pointed arch with a double chamfered arch ring. The house (south-east) front is similar. Interior: has plain carpentry detail. This cellar add woodsheds form a group with Holcombe Court (q.v), its ancillary buildings (most of which are listed), the Church of All Saints (q.v) and the houses at the top end of Holcombe Rogus.
