HER Number:MDV55441
Name:BUILDING in the Parish of Shaugh Prior

Summary

Vis=18/5/1995 (gerrard) this structure lies within yard (subsheet 8) and survives as a row of 4 very large flat slabs placed parallel to each other and tilted so that each partly overlies the next. Each is placed at right angles to the causeway leading to the farmhouse. If once upright these slabs would have defined 3 parallel compartments, which may have been intended for animal stalling. A drilled groove in each slab may indicate the method of stone splitting which worth suggests is unknown locally before 1803. However the presence of a groove on lower east side of each slab suggests it may have had some particular function (mpp).
