GRAMPOUND FORE STREET (south side), Grampound SW 9248-9348 WITH CREED 7/59 Drying shed and attached pit shed at the east side of the Manor 10.2.67 Tannery group (formerly listed under Manor Tannery)

GV II

Drying shed and attached pit shed. Dated 1839 in the internal plasterwork of the drying shed, with additions of circa mid C19 and few later alterations. Slatestone rubble with granite dressings and quoins. The drying shed has a slate roof with ridge tiles and gable ends, with a ventilator on the roof ridge. The pit shed has roof in 3 sections, in bitumenised slate and corrugated iron; the front has a gable end and the rear has a hipped roof with stack with brick shaft at the end. Plan: The drying shed is a rectangular building with the drying room on the upper storey. It is attached to the pit shed by a corridor at first floor level. The pit shed is set at right angles to the drying shed, running on about the same axis, north/south, with a drying loft at the south end and the pits at the north end. At the north end, the shed is open at the outer side, with tanks for liquor, for soaking the skins. The skins are kept in motion in the liquor, and the movement was formerly powered from a waterwheel at some distance to south. Exterior: The drying shed is 2-storey; the front gable end has a plank door with cambered stone arch, first floor has stable-type plank door for loading, also with cambered stone arch and small single window opening. At the right side there is a corridor at first floor leading to the pitshed, with similar plank door at ground floor and double height plank door to right. At loft level there are wooden ventilation louvres. The pit shed is in three builds; all 2-storey. The rear end is hipped, with stack with brick shaft, the side facing the drying shed has 2 plank doors and window at ground floor, with ventilation louvres at loft level, blind at the outer side. The middle range has a corrugated iron roof; there is a door and C20 window at ground floor on the side facing the pit shed, with ventilation louvres faced in corrugated iron at loft level. The outer side has plank door with overlight and wooden louvres above. The front end range is the pit shed. This has a gable end to north with window with timber lintel. The outer side has two openings with cambered stone arches to right, and to left there are two wide openings with timber lintels, divided by granite monolith piers with central drain. Inside this are the pits, lined with brick, and the front path is cobbled. The upper level is faced in corrugated iron with a loading door, and to right there is a C19 2-light 5-pane casement with cambered stone arch. Interior: The drying shed is dated in the plaster on the wall of the loft. The loft has a roof with the trusses set close together, so that the tie beams form the racks for hanging the skins; the principal rafters are crossed at the apex and pegged. These buildings appear to be the earliest surviving on the tannery site, the other buildings on the site have been much rebuilt and altered in C20.
