LOSTWITHIEL SX 05 NE 7/41 Cow house and attached wall and 4.6.79 trough south of Castle GV II

Cow house. Early C19. Slatestone rubble with granite and brick dressings, slate roofs. Rectangular plan, deeper than it is wide. The 3-bay front leads to a 2-bay interior, of double width to left, and at a lower level to right; the wide bay can be entered through a cart entry and has a narrow entrance to the rear. The right side was originally open, divided by granite piers. The false wall to the front has pigeonholes, and there is a loft over the cowhouse. The original function is not clear, although the building is unusual in its architectural treatment and-does not appear to have been altered. The front wall is divided into 3 bays, with central elliptical cart entrance, narrow round-arched entrance to each side; the heads of all the entrances are level although the ground slopes down to the right to the lower level bay. Loading door above to left and right, blind to right, all openings in granite surrounds with dressed granite quoins and voussoirs. String course and parapet, with 3 rows of pigeonholes in brick, parapet raised to form 2 shallow gables, each with pigeonhole at the apex. The left side has 4 ventilation slits at ground floor level. Attached to left, a single storey rubble lean-to with corrugated iron roof. Attached to left, rubble wall about 1 metres high, swept round to enclose a semicircular area at a higher level to the front left of the cowhouse. Slate water trough set in wall at outer end of curve. The wall is continued to north for about 18 metres further. The right side has a lean-to roof over over the narrow bay, at a lower level, 6 bays divided by roughly hewn granite piers, with wooden doors. The rear gable end of the wide bay has 2 doors and upper loading door. Interior The 2 bays are divided by an arcade of 3 bays, with basket arches in brick on rectangular granite piers. The stonework of the piers is interlaced with slatestone, and the piers have impost mouldings.
