Shippon and Stables adjoining west - of Underdown Farmhouse.

Shippon and stables. Mid - late 19th century. Exposed local stone and flint rubble; slate roof.

Plan: this range of farm buildings containing mainly a shippon and stables projects right angles in front of the south end of Underdown Farmhouse (q.v). It is in 3 sections each on a slightly different axis describing a kind of angular arc but basically facing north. The left-hand section (nearest the house) is some kind of store (maybe it was a cider house). The centre section is the shippon with hayloft over and it contains a through-passage and the right (west) section is the stable with hayloft over.

Exterior: the left section includes 2 square-headed doorways and the windows here are glazed. The shippon has an arcade of 4 segmental-headed doorways, the left arch is more pronounced and almost pointed. There are 2 hayloft loading hatches above. The stable section contains a stable door with window to right, hayloft loading hatch above and a doorway to a staircase to left. The roof is hipped to right.

Interior: has plain carpentry detail and the roof is carried on A-frame trusses with spiked lap-jointed collars and plate yokes. This range of traditional farm buildings form a group with the attractive Underdown Farmhouse (q.v).
