Full Description

Outbuilding, near junction of B5056 and Bonsall Lane, Winster, possibly a late 19th century building. There is no Tithe map available for Winster, and the earliest available map on which the building appears is the 1st edition 25" OS map of c1880, where it is not labelled. Given the contemporary frequency of 'Old Lead Mines' marked on this map, the precise function of this building is not clear. A rapid field visit carried out in 1994 described it as a '...Field barn with corrugated iron and asbestos roof,' and produced some photography. (1-2) The building is part of the Peak District National Park Historic Farmsteads Survey of 2016. (3) The structure began as a fairly small building of limestone rubble some time in the 19th century. It later had extensions, of similar construction, added at either end, and finally a lean too structured was added to one end. (4)
