GV II

Cowshed. 1844-7. Coursed rubble limestone with ashlar dressings and quoins; Welsh slate roof. Wide-span (53 feet) rectangular plan, lofted at N end. Gabled to north and south ends, stone-coped with ball finials. North facade dominated by wide central round-arched opening with similar arch, glazed above transom, to opening set one bay back within the interior. Vermiculated quoins and cow's head keystone to outer arch, with circular louvred vent set centrally in gable above. Plain surounds and bracketed sills to first-floor casements and ground-floor hit-and-miss ventilators. South gable has similar arch to window above small mucking-out doorway with timber lintel below. Mid C20 fenestration to sides. Interior has wide-span king post roof with outer struts and bracing. Plank sliding doors with inner pedestrian door from inner porch to cowshed, the porch having stairs to first-floor gallery and doorways to flanmking feed stores. Projecting eastwards from the south end of the east wall, and adjacent to a lean-to with loose boxes, is a single-storey range of pigsties with timber lintels over south-facing doors. HISTORY: the exact original use of this distinctive and most unusual building, whether for fatstock or draught oxen, is unclear, although it clearly relates to the 'High Farming' period of English Agriculture underway from the 1840s. The farmstead belonged to Wadham College, Oxford, between 1612 and 1926. The farm comprised 311 acres in 1840, the adjacent barn dating from at least the early C18. This building was built for C Royd Smith, who bought part of the estate in 1842, lived at the Manor House and sold his rights back to Wadham College in 1857-8.
