Full Description

Former shippon at Marston Park, Cubley Lane, Marston Montgomery, an early 18th century building. The building is shown on the Tithe map of 1838. (1) An early 18th agricultural building in brick on a stone plinth featuring a round aperture. Believed to have served as a cow shed until the 19th century, when the remodelling of the farm meant that the new ranges of dairy and cow sheds were built to the north on the farmhouse, possibly relating to the Cowshed and Milkshop Order of 1885. It was subjected to a historic building survey in 2017: 'The 3-bay roof comprises a 20th century replacement of corrugated sheets. The north elevation forms the front of the barn. It appears that the opening was larger primarily as the plinth stops short of the present opening, which is filled in with brick to accommodate the 20th century sliding door. To the south there is a chamfered stone plinth to the base of a blocked opening, which the listing describes as a doorway. There is one blocked and one open oval stone window in the southern elevation, and two side-by-side blocked windows in the western elevation with brick soldier arches. Interior. The king-post trusses have 3-rows of purlins and ridge piece of two boards; the floor is concrete screed.'
