Details

TL 23NW ARLESEY STOTFOLD ROAD 5/131 Onion drying shed approx. 20 metres SE of Waterloo Farmhouse GV II

Onion drying shed. Early Cl9, but apparently reusing some earlier timbers. Timber framed construction, clad in wood slatting, with weatherboarding to gable ends. Thatched roof. Long low structure oriented W-E, doors all to N elevation. Divided into 2 parts, 4 bays to W, 5 bays to E. Clasped purlin roof structure. Apart from re-used pieces, timbers are machine cut but substantial and of high quality. Curved braces to all main posts and wood- pegged joints. Wood slat floor raised approximately half metre from ground. Catslide roof to S elevation, where ground banks up, producing sheltered unused space, probably to provide weather protection at same time as allowing for air circulation. A fine example of an agricultural building type peculiar to this market gardening area of the country.
