MIDDLEWICH C.P. CANAL TERRACE SJ 76 NW 2/54A Canal stables and Sawpit-house


Service buildings of the Trent and Mersey Canal and still in the ownership of British Waterways. The sawpit building has early features and could well share the circa 1777 canal date but the stables are probably early C19. Red brick, C18 slates with diminishing courses to the sawpit-house, later thin slates on the stables. Sawpit house: Two window bays, single storey. Two-light-casements. Double ledged and braced door, on strap hinges with sandstone hinge blocks, under chamfered beam in gable-end (east). The gable has exposed purlins and barge boards. Lead ridge. Interior: Brick built saw pit full length of building approximately 7.5m long 1.5m wide and 1.8m deep said to be used for cutting lock gate beams. The roof is supported by a collar truss with short king post and there are two chamfered purlins. Stables: Two truss bays, single storey and loft. Feeding passage boarded door in rebated brick opening under gauged eliptical arch with stone keystone. The door is on strap hinges with stone hinge blocks. Stable entry double doors, similar to last described, but with the eliptical arch springing from the upper hinge blocks. Between the doors there is a small wood window of which the upper section is a hopper light. The window is surmounted, at loft level, by a circular pitch hole with stone surround. There is a small loft level, east gable, window which overlooks the roof of the sawpit building. There are patterns of breather holes in the apexes of east and west gables and projecting brick verge and eaves treatment slightly suggestive of the open pediment. Blue clay tile ridge. Interior: The roof has a single king post truss without struts. There are no remaining internal features indicative of the original use of the building.
