Forge, stable and cart shed, now a house. Probably c1870, the same date as The Old Smithy (qv). Stone rubble; red-brick window surrounds in rear wall. Slated roofs. 2 small red-brick chimneys. Plan: the buildings occupy the left side of a yard with the former smith's house (The Old Smithy (qv)) on the right. Gable-end on to the road is the former stable with the forge behind. Beyond that again, set a little over to the right, so that its gable faces the road, is the former cart-house with a small room at the rear. A small late C20 entrance-porch has been built in the angle between the forge and the cart-house. Exterior: originally single-storeyed with loft over room behind cart-house. Now 2-storeyed, except for stable. Front openings have flat or slightly curved arches with well-cut voussoirs; small-paned late C20 wood casements. Stable has wide doorway to right, window to left. Forge has long, former louvre with pitched roof on its ridge. Cart-house has wide doorway in gable-end; double doors with strap-hinges. INTERIOR inspected on ground floor. Between stable and forge the original plank door with strap-hinges; top and bottom halves open separately; a variety of initials, etc, carved on the planks, chamfered wood frame. Forge retains the stone rubble base of the original smith's forge; leather bellows remain in position behind it.
