Site visit to Lower Langage Farm observed a 19th century stable, next to Lower Langage Farm. Should be conserved as a group to give the farmhouse its proper context. Map object based on this Source.

The stable is part of a mjor rebuild of the staeding from c1890-1900. It is a gable-ended two storey block facing east onto the yard.

There is an original window opening to the hayloft in the southern end and a ventilator slit and a second stable doorway in the north end.

The interior stall partitions have been removed and the north is partitioned off by a 20th century concrete blcok wall to create a bull pen at the end. The floor is terracotta grooved pavoirs and includes an axial drain. The hayloft floor is carried on a series of stout joists set onto horizontal timber laces built into the sidewalls and strengthened by X-braces.
