EAST AND WEST BUCKLAND SS 62 NE 5/64 Mays Leary Farmhouse, including - stable, shippon and slaughter house adjoining at east end - II

Farmhouse with stable, shippon and slaughter-house attached. Farmhouse probably early C18, extended probably in late C18. Stable; shippon and slaughter house mid C19. Farmhouse rendered stone rubble and cob. Half-hipped thatch roof. Partially demolished stack at left end and axial brick stack. Stable, shippon and slaughter- house stone rubble with asbestos slate roof. Original plan of farmhouse consists of 2 heated principal rooms to each side of passage with stairs to rear, with 2 rooms added probably in late C18 to right, the axial stack (formerly gable end) heating also the left-hand room, the right-hand room formerly a dairy, with loft over. The farmhouse may well at one time have been in two occupations. The stable, shippon and slaughter house extend from the right- hand end to form an L-shaped plan. 2 storeys. C19/C20 fenestration. Left side has two 2-light casements 6 panes per light above 3-light casements 6 panes per light flanking leanto slate roof to porch with inner plank door. Right side has a 2-light casement 6 panes per light on each floor to left, and a 2-light casement 3 panes per light to ground floor right of leanto slate roof to porch. Original fenestration, including a 2-light casement with square leaded lights, intact to rear. Interior joinery largely intact to ground floor. Doorways with timber lintels to stable and shippon. At right end of latter is partially infilled cart entrance suggesting this originally served as a barn. The slaughter-house, projecting at right angles at right end, is still in use as such and retains all its C19 fittings including timber axle and wheel hoist and brick floor.
