Full description

Department of Environment, 1985, Braunton, 9 (List of Blds of Arch or Historic Interest). SDV73918.

Bee-boles, probably 18th century, in a walled courtyard. The courtyard now includes a lean-to animal shelter in front of the bee-boles, consisting of a 20th century corrugated roof on timber supports. Walls of rubble with cob in the upper parts and pantiled capping. The rubble on the south facing wall is built up higher than the remaining walls to accommodate bee-boles which are partially obscured by inserted manger. Central door opening with arrangement of 2 tiers of 10 to each side with plastered niches, slate bases and shouldered heads.Three pairs of bee-boles have been infilled with rubble. The bee boles are sited to the south of the enclosed house garden and possibly form part of a grander garden design now lost. Other details: 8/13.
