Full description

Department of Environment, 1987, Manaton, 14 (List of Blds of Arch or Historic Interest). SDV303187.

Stable approximately 10 metres south of Ford Farmhouse. Former stable now used as hen-house and cow-house. Probably late 18th century. Granite rubble walls with larger quoins to the lower end. Corrugated iron roof gabled to the left end and hipped to the right.
Plan probably comprised two loose boxes with individual access in front, with solid wall dividing them from a row of stalls at the rear. Later open-ended addition, possibly cart shed to one end. Hay loft above stable section. There are various interruptions in the stonework which cannot be explained by the present plan. Stable is two storey, cart shed the same height but one storey. In the original building there are two doors towards the left and right ends on the ground floor with a window in between. Window to first floor left of centre. To the right hand gable end on the ground floor is a small window opening to the left and a door to the right giving access to the stalls. Loading door on first floor. The addition to the left gable end of the stable is open ended and has a doorway to the right end of the front wall. Interior: the loose boxes have wooden hayracks and the original fittings survive to the stalls: the sloping wooden partitions, wooden mangers and hayracks. Heavy rough cross beams support the loft floor above the stalls.
The roof is pegged with high collars. Forms a group with ford farmhouse and its farm buildings.
