Cider house. A building with late medieval origins. It was probably built as a cider house and cellar. It is sited close to a stream, which borders the churchyard. Painted; rendered; rubble stone walls. Thatch roof. A-frame. 2-bay hipped roof. The roof has been much rebuilt in the 17th century, and more recently in the 1980s by A. M. Howard, in the style of the 17th century roof. There are two A-frame trusses on axial pads with pegged, mortise and tenon apex joints. The collars are lap-jointed and pegged. There is one set of back purlins and a diagonal ridge. Door/s; timber window/s. The door is late medieval. It is planked, with a segmental arch head and is held on strap hinges. It has been repaired in places. The head beam has a central projection which is held between two durns. The segmental arch head of the frame is chamfered. The two windows to the front have timber frames, mullions and shutters. They are likely to be replacements. Currently disused.

Cider House approximately 15 yards east of Churchstyle Farm House (previously listed as The Church Ale House) in Stockland. Cider house 18th century or earlier. Small cob building with stone rubble west wall and thatched hipped roof. One storey and loft, the loft floor having been removed. West side has heavy timber window frame, loft opening boarded up and a heavy pointed arch timber doorframe with boarded door. This doorframe is probably reused and might have come from Churchstyle Farmhouse. A small stream runs beneath the north end of the building. Other details: LBS No 88238.
