Full description

Ordnance Survey Archaeology Division, 1953, SX78SE11, 3/5/1953 (Ordnance Survey Archaeology Division Card). SDV280142.

SX78158052 Lower Hisley Farm, an ash house, probably medieval, in good condition, differing from the usual localized type of ash house insofar as it does not incorporate the usual corbelled stone roof, having one of flat stones mortared together instead.
The building is 3 metres in diameter with 0.5 metres thick walling and is approximately 4.0 metres in height. Fitted with a wooden door it is kept purely for decorative purposes in the garden.


Department of Environment, 1986, Lustleigh, 118 (List of Blds of Arch or Historic Interest). SDV304543.

Ash house. 19th century or earlier. Granite rubble. Circular building with conical roof of corbelled granite. Doorway has jambs of large pieces of granite and a lintel made of a single piece of stone. Two iron hinges on right jamb and a wrought-iron door catch on left jamb. On opposite side a small rectangular opening, the sill splayed downwards on the inside, presumably as a chute for the ashes.
