Full description

Harris, H., 1968, Industrial Archaeology of Dartmoor, 202 (Monograph). SDV149229.

There is an example of a rectangular ash house at Waye.


Department of Environment, 1986, Lustleigh, 128 (List of Blds of Arch or Historic Interest). SDV304543.

Ash house. 19th century or earlier. Granite rubble with flat roof made of long pieces of granite, laid crosswise. A small oblong building with doorway in short shouth-east wall. Lintel and main parts of the jambs of this doorway are of single large pieces of granite; the right-hand jamb has two large iron hinges for a door. In the centre of the roof one of the long granite pieces has been omitted and instead there are short pieces of granite laid lengthways. This leaves an aperture at the top of each of the long side-walls; on the south-west side the aperture has been lengthened, probably to allow the ashes to be inserted. It is doubtful if the aperture on the north-east side is original, since it adjoins a field belonging to a neighbouring farm.
